Skills Arena

TCIA is excited to announce the interactive skills arena on the TCI EXPO 2018 trade show floor! Each session is complete with instruction, demonstration and hands-on experience for participants and observers, all under the eye of the North American Training Solutions safety team. Teams of 3-4 people compete in a variety of skill set games including chain saw use, climbing, rigging and aerial rescue, with the winning team receiving a prize bundle of some incredible arborist gear.
