ISA Board Certified Master Arborist Exam Temporarily Suspended.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill (May 2015) – The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) is temporarily suspending the
administration of the current Board Certified Master Arborist (BCMA) exam as of June 1, 2015. Based on the
organization’s dedication to quality programs, continuous improvement, and customer satisfaction, the ISA Board
decided to suspend the BCMA program to allow time to work on improving the overall exam experience and
provide a more fluid transition to a new exam.

“ISA is committed to quality and our goal is to provide the best program for the industry,” states Jim Skiera, ISA’s
Executive Director. A new exam will allow ISA to better accommodate the global reach of the BCMA credential.
“We realize that this decision affects our members and Certified Arborists, but we are dedicated to offering flexibility
for BCMA candidates and continuing to serve those who already hold the credential.”Read the full press release for more details at…/news_ISABCMAProgramSuspension.pdf
