Welcome to the Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI), a program of the TCIA Foundation! Our mission is to help provide a local and affordable resources for quality safety training, specifically designed for working arborists.
As you may know, arborists face unique hazards every day on the job. While many receive some form of informal safety training, too many still risk their lives due to inadequate training. That’s where ASTI comes in. We offer grants for job and safety training to help minimize injuries and deaths, and to promote overall workforce safety.
