  • Employing instructors are who are the “best of the best” in the industry. The CITCA team is made up of trained professionals, qualified in a variety of areas of expertise including regulatory compliance, vertical rescue, renewable energy, telecommunications, construction and more.
  • Providing training that doesn’t take a “cookie cutter” approach. We develop our programs and services to meet our client’s unique needs and skill levels, and we structure training that is realistic to the industry.

At CITCA, we share a common goal: To provide every student and client with the knowledge and skills to work safely, and to make sure everyone goes home at the end of the day.
