I need advise regarding mold remediation training and cert. please.
Lead cert. and waiting for builder license!Until Wannabe chimes in, start with the following.
Go to the IICRC.org website. Read about the classes they offer.
Wannabe suggested that I take WRT, FSRT, OCT, AMRT and ASD. So far, I have completed the first 3 classes listed above. AMRT and ASD are taught on location whereas the other classes are taught across the country. My plan is to get in the AMRT class sometime this spring.
I'm not looking to these classes/certifications for P&P. I'm planning on focusing on my construction and remodeling part of my company diversification.
As side note, my current renovation project requires lead and asbestos abatement. After seeing what the asbestos companies are charging, you may want to look into that.
WRT was 2 daysLead cert. and waiting for builder license!
Was the class difficult? WRT, FSRT, OCT, AMRT and ASD - How many classroom hours?
Yes both inspections and remediation.If I could add something I would be careful about falling for all the different acronyms. IICRC and IAQA are the two main associations and they know that while adding new certs. may enhance ones knowledge it also makes more money.
The difference between associations? Not much. In a nutshell, IICRC is more carpet cleaning world while IAQA is more indoor air quality (IH stuff). Save yourself time and money and pick one association to belong to and get the cert that best fits your needs. There are some independent service providers for them, and plenty of ones who are peddling their own curriculum with no recognized certification.
Are you going to be doing ? That's going to dictate the type of cert you want to get. Hope this helps.
