The ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) Renewal Online is conducted in two separate phases:​

  • Phase 1 requires that you attend MSA’s TRAQ Renewal Online workshop scheduled on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 8 am to 4:00 pm. MSA will be using the Zoom platform and technology. We encourage registrants to test the desktop/laptop computer they will be using PRIOR to registering for this program to ensure that you have no problems showing your web cam, utilizing your microphone, etc. This is required for participation in the online renewal program. Once the online renewal workshop is completed, you will proceed to Phase two.
  • Phase 2 is administered by ISA utilizing Pearson VUE’s online testing center. Again, we recommend that you test the desktop/laptop you will be using PRIOR to registering for this program to ensure that you can utilize your device to complete both the written and performance based portions of the exam. You will have 90-days to complete phase two of your exam and ISA will provide instructions to you directly. (Note: MSA does not oversee Phase 2 of your exam.)​

We you review ISA’s informational sheet on how the TRAQ Renewal Online differs from in-person workshops.
