Course Description:


This course is a comprehensive study of mold and moisture damage, and the effects thereof on structures. It is conveyed in a “bump-up” learning environment. Learning begins in an abstract form and then expands into a more formative development of specifics. Part one begins with Mold basics which is a primer that covers: mold’s history, types of, health concerns of, requirements for its growth, inspection methods for, sampling and testing of, individual and professional remediation practices.


Next bump-up level is Part two which covers the following: aspects of mold’s growth, types, conveyance systems, and discoveries through professional mold remediation practices. It will also cover proper use of PPE (personal protection equipment), safety, learning how to find the Red Flags of moisture intrusion and the theory of associated client Red Flag Symptoms caused by exposure to mold.


Part three is a 4-part system expansion that delves deeper into all aspects of the inspection processes that inspectors will encounter in mold and moisture damage within structures. The culminating enhanced areas will be on use of equipment, sampling and testing, report writing based on findings, and marketing the business of environmental inspection techniques.


Course Objectives:


To educate, enhance and expand an inspector’s knowledge of the microbial growth field and the damage factors precipitated by moisture intrusion, through applied empirical observation while gathering quantitative data with instruments from the outside to inside, and from the attic down to the basement or crawlspace.


After participation, the attendee will become proficient in learning microbial growth (mold) patterns in various inhabitable structures and areas thereof, have an expanded physiology of microbial growth, and have the knowledge and use of expanded personal protection equipment when inspecting for microbial growth, write a complete environmental inspection report with integrated and annotated picture references, and present the client with a findings report subjacent to the microbiology labs report. The student will also be able to incorporate this leaning into creating and operating a business model.
