Attending A Mold Remediation Course In Ontario

There is a mold remediation course available in Ontario nearly every other month, and as long as a technician is located close to either Ottawa or Toronto, they will find it easy to travel to and complete the training process and exam. Canada is looking for more and more fungal removal experts currently, as it’s now clear that fungal contamination can cause significant health problems in those exposed. In fact, every federal and provincial agency in Canada considers fungal contamination to be a major risk factor for several health conditions, and recommend that homeowners address the problem as soon as it is identified.

This is where removal experts come in, as the removal process is normally delicate and requires special equipment. Technicians that are trained in this field are a valuable resource to homeowners across Canada, and with certification, they are usually the first people on call when contamination is spotted.

Where can a professional find a mold remediation course in Ontario?

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is linked with approved schools all over the world, including schools that operate out of Toronto and Ottawa. In general, there is a class available in either city about every two to three months, and a professional can plan in advance by searching through the schools’ calendars. Professionals on the western side of the province can easily access a class by traveling to Winnipeg, as there are frequently classes there too.

What will a professional learn during a mold remediation course in Ontario?

The IICRC has produced several classes that have to do with water restoration and fungal removal, and they are typically taken together to give the professional comprehensive knowledge of the subjects. These include the IICRC’s Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) class, the Applied Structural Drying Technician (ASD) class and the Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) class. Together, these classes instruct students in every essential concept regarding fungal removal.

The WRT teaches students how to quickly respond to water damage, which is the primary risk factor for fungal contamination. Technicians are taught how to minimize water infiltration, how to remove excess water, and how to identify the secondary dangers that water accumulation causes, such as microbial contamination. Students are also taught basic structural drying techniques.

The ASD goes into structural drying methods in greater depth and teaches students how to dry a variety of materials in an efficient, timely manner.

The AMRT is the primary mold remediation course in Ontario, and instructs students in the most current, more effective procedures for removing fungal contamination in a safe manner. During the class, students will be introduced to current industry practices, including accepted equipment and detergents designed for the job.

Once a professional has worked through and attained certification in the IICRC’s collection of restoration and fungal removal classes, they will be ready to take their career to another level in Canada, and help homeowners maintain safe homes.
