Contact Dawn Thierbach at 810-338-6531 to set up your Ground Operations Workshop for you, your co-workers, or employees.

This comprehensive Workshop provides training for the new and “not-so-new” Ground Crew.  It covers vehicle safety, job planning and preparation, working safely and efficiently, preventing struck-bys, and safe felling operations.
Once a candidate has completed the workshop and gone through the manual, TCIA will grade the exam and issue a certificate of completion, a laminated wallet card, a helmet decal and an embroidered patch.  Transcripts are maintained in the TCIA Database.

This Workshop meets the ANSI and OSHA/MIOSHA requirements for training, as well as helps create a “Safety Culture” and professionalism in our industry.
