IAQA Mold Remediation Supervisor Seminar

This three-day program is designed to give microbial remediation supervisors an introduction to the core concepts of indoor environmental remediation along with detailed instruction on supervision of microbial remediation projects.

Four in One Course Objective:

  • Learn to supervise microbial remediation projects.
  • Study review/Exam preparation for *ACAC CMR or CMRS certification exams.
  • Continuing education credits for ACAC, IICRC, ABIH
  • Certificate of attendance from IAQA!

On the first day of the courses all the attendees are together in the classroom and stay there for the lecture portion of both classes throughout Day 1. On Day 2 of the course the first two hours are done together in the classroom area. After the first morning break the entire class will help design the containment area to be built by the Mold Technicians. Once the design has been determined the technicians spend most of the remainder of the day building negative pressure containment and working with equipment that is used on mold remediation projects. The supervisors continue with lecture in the training room. Toward mid-afternoon the technicians should finish the containment and the entire class evaluates it. Technicians then review for the quiz at the end of the course, take the quiz and then tear down the containment that was built earlier in the day. Technicians leave after Day 2 is over.

Day 3 of the course is for the supervisors only and includes an intensive review of industry standards, guidelines and applicable regulations. There is also significant exam review and test prep for attendees that intend to seek ACAC certification at an independent testing center. ALL ATTENDEES RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE FROM THE IAQA.

Attendees are prepared to take one of three levels of certification exam through the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC). ACAC was formerly the American IAQ Council and is one of the most widely recognized certification councils in the US. The certification exams must be taken at a third party testing center on a computer. Applications will be available at the class or from www.acac.org. ACAC certifications are approved by the Council for Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB) the same organization that approves the ABIH Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) certification. Because the certifications are board awarded, and are not affiliated with training or membership organizations they are recognized by some state regulations and US Housing and Urban Development (HUD). They are more expensive and more difficult to achieve than any other certification in the industry. Following are the levels of certification these courses prepare attendees for:

Certified Residential Mold Remediator (CRMR) - Technician Level, no experience required. 50 question exam.
Certified Microbial Remediator (CMR) - 3 years verifiable microbial remediation experience required. 100 question exam.
Certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor (CMRS) - 5 years verifiable microbial remediation experience required. 120 question exam.
