Arboriculture-related events may be submitted to ISA Headquarters (HQ) or a local ISA Chapters/Associate Organization  to be pre-assigned ISA Continuing Education Units (CEUs). If your event is deemed eligible for ISA certification holders to earn CEUs, approval and pre-assignment of CEUs is required prior to marketing your program as an ISA-CEU granting event.

Local events should be submitted for pre-approval to your local ISA Chapter or Associated Organization. Only events that have a national or international reach should be sent to ISA for pre-approval.

If you would like to submit an event for review and pre-approval of CEUs, please use this form.

It is important to note that:

  • Programs should not be advertised in any marketing materials as eligible for ISA CEUs without ISA’s pre-approval confirmation.
  • Our current processing time is four to six weeks. Any event submitted less than 30 days prior to the event date will not be considered for approval.
  • As a continuing education provider, you must provide a method to record attendance or score assessments (for self-guided programs). If/when a sign-in sheet and CEU code is provided, it should only be given to program participants after the event is completed.
  • Sign-in sheets should be sent electronically to within 30 days of program start date. You should receive a confirmation message. ISA is not responsible for undelivered messages, if you do not receive a confirmation please call us at +1 678.367.0981.
