TCIA is excited to announce a new learning opportunity on the TCI EXPO 2018 trade show floor! The Skills Arena is an interactive learning environment complete with instruction, demonstration and hands-on experience.

Each session will begin with practical training provided by North American Training Solutions, followed by the opportunity for trade show attendees to compete in teams of 3-4 members in a variety of skill sets to include chain saw, climbing, rigging and trauma, with the winning team receiving a prize bundle of some incredible arborist gear. This new approach to interactive learning will allow participants the opportunity to observe industry best practices in a safe and fun learning environment, as well as to practice these skills by using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, all under the eye of the NATS safety team.

All NATS safety and educational programs comply with ANSI Z490 Standard Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health and Environmental training, as well as applicable OSHA, ASTM, and ISO Standards. NATS certified instructors will provide all personal protective equipment (PPE) and necessary equipment to participating attendees.

Be part of the experience! If you're interested in participating, head to the Skills Arena when the trade show floor opens each morning to sign up for specific challenges. All challenges are first-come, first-served, and space is limited.

See you at TCI EXPO in Charlotte!
