Mold Customized Training
Molds are a naturally occurring part of the human environment. We can never rid the world of them, nor should we want to: they can help us as well as harm us.
While molds in the outdoor environment are not under our control, we can and should control indoor mold growth. Indoor molds can cause a wide variety of human illness, including infections, allergies, triggering asthma, and toxic effects. The primary source of indoor mold problems is excess moisture (as water or vapor) infiltration.
Recent legal actions have focused on the need to rapidly identify and remediate mold intrusions in buildings, although there are currently no regulations or mandatory state or federal standards for how this is to be done.
Our mold courses are designed to help you protect yourself and your company while enabling you to understand best work practice requirements.
While there are no Midwestern state which requires accreditation for mold treatment personnel, guidelines for such work have been published by U.S. EPA, U.S. OSHA, and the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and these guidelines are incorporated into our courses as appropriate. Our Mold Remediation Supervisor course meets the training standards for Louisiana construction contractors conducting mold remediation.
