Mold Control and Remediation Training

It is not enough to know how.

Contractors need to know why -- the key to avoiding costly or hazardous outcomes and to using the most effective practical solution.

This 3-day course provides technicians and contractors with the information and method training needed to successfully perform safe and effective mold remediation -- with the goals of restoring and maintaining a healthy indoor environment and property protection. The course will cover industry standards and procedures as well as provide participants with a working knowledge of mold characteristics, moisture dynamics and building science principles that are crucial to both mold removal and control.

Satisfactory completion of this course fulfills the 24-hour initial technical training requirement for a Mold Remediation Contractor license in the state of Louisiana. (See course content below.) For information about additional requirements to obtain a license, visit
