Continuing Education Units (CEU)

Arboriculture Australia™ Continuing Education Units (CEUs) align with the Arboriculture Australian Qualifications Framework requirements. For members to have CEUs registered and displayed on the association’s website, they need to be a current Professional Member.

This will also be used as a register for customers, utilities, developers, Local and State Government authorities to cross reference Professional, Practicing and Consulting Arborists’ qualifications and mandatory workplace training such as Construction Induction (‘white/blue/red cards’), manual handling, noise conservation, first aid and CPR.

ISA Certification CEUs are recognised in the Australian CEU program.

Arboriculture Australia validates all Registered Professional Members who operate or work for a company that holds an active ABN or ACN only.

It should be noted; Arboriculture Australia Ltd takes no responsibility for the insurance held by a Registered Professional Member based in other countries. Arboriculture Australia Ltd does not validate any insurance held by companies based outside of Australia.
