Join Openlands staff for a virtual info session to learn more about the Arborist Registered Apprenticeship program! The Arborist Registered Apprenticeship is a 3-year training program administered by Openlands in partnership with the Department of Labor and Tree Care Companies across the Chicago region. The Apprenticeship coordinates with the industry to improve recruitment and retention and create a path to welcome more diverse and experienced applicants. At the same time, the program introduces participating apprentices to a diverse array of career opportunities in Arboriculture and Urban Forestry, all while being paid, gaining credentials, and professional training by certified arborists in the field.

This hour-long event will cover the following:

  • an overview of the ARA program
  • hiring timeline for the 2024 cohort
  • panel of current apprentices
  • Q & A

This event will be recorded and sent out afterward to the ARA outreach list.
