ISA Re-launches the BCMA Program

The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) announces the relaunch of the newly-updated Board Certified Master Arborist® (BCMA™) exam effective 1 February.

In response to user feedback requesting a better exam experience and accommodation for the global reach of the program, ISA performed an intensive and highly successful review, revision, and assessment of the exam in order to meet these expectations.

As of 1 February, ISA is accepting applications for the updated exam. The application handbook is available on the ISA website. For more information on the test revision process, read the full news release and list of frequently asked questions available online.
