Mold Remediation Contractor / Supervisor
Governmental: No Midwestern state currently requires accreditation for mold work. This three-day course meets the Louisiana requirement, but does not meet the Texas requirement for a five-day course.
Nationally Recognized: The American Council for Accredited Certification has three levels of nationally recognized mold remediation certifications. All three certifications are based on experience and successful completion of an examination which can be taken online at hundreds of locations nationwide. While no course is required for this certification, this three-day course includes all required elements for certification and should adequately prepare candidates for successfully completing certification
Mold is everywhere. It is a part of the natural environment and is inescapable.
Mold is both helpful and harmful. Without it we would not have foods such as wine, bread, and certain cheeses and sausages, and without it trees would lie on the forest floor for century without turning back into soil. But in the indoor environment mold can create a number of problems.
Vigorous indoor mold growth is a serious problem. In this course we will help remediators recognize and categorize mold problems, remove the source of moisture (and nutrients if necessary), inactivate the growing mold, and effectively deal with the mold residues and damaged surfaces.
