Planning To Take Certified Mold Inspector Training In MN
While certified mold inspector training is available in MN, it is best to plan several months in advance to make the process as simple as possible. There are fewer courses available year round up North, but there are typically several available in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas throughout the year, and professionals always have the option of traveling to Chicago, Milwaukee, or even Canada if they are willing to make the drive.
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is one of the few organizations that provides certified mold inspector training in MN, through several approved schools and instructors. The IICRC maintains two primary sets of standards relevant to the field – the s500 and s520, and their material is adapted for use during the IICRC’s Water Damage Restoration Technician (AMRT) course, and its Advanced Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) course.
The WRT is a prerequisite to the AMRT, and presents a number of fundamental methods for locating, analyzing, and eliminating fungal contamination. The AMRT offers targeted curriculum that goes into more depth regarding analyzing and removing of fungal threats. Both are essential to understanding where fungal contamination starts, how it spreads, its risks, and how it is dealt with. Students will also learn a number of safety measures that will keep them and others safe when working around fungal contamination. In this way, a professional will be completely prepared to face mold contamination and direct remediation technicians in their efforts.
