Massachusetts Certified Arborists Program: AN OVERVIEW

9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
MHS Elm Bank Reservation
Wellesley, MA

This course offers an overview of the MCA program including what to expect when you take the MCA exam, helpful study tips, a review of key points, and useful strategies for Tree ID –  brought to you by members of the MCA committee and MAA management.

The course is designed to provide a review of key points for each chapter of the Study Guide.  The course does NOT attempt to teach the material found in the study guide.  It is expected that course candidates have reviewed and/or are familiar with the content of the study guide itself.  The presenters will focus on strategies for effective studying and test taking.  Course participation does not guarantee improved performance on the MCA exam.
