ACAC Recertification - 8 Credit Hours
IICRC Continuing Education - 8 Credits

Learn what is not taught for mold remediation that impacts your success if you want to understand how fungal fragments change procedures.  Attendees should have experience for mold remediation as a prerequisite.  Training from providers for IICRC or ACAC certifications would be ideal.  Industrial hygienists, engineers and indoor environmental professionals are welcome.  This day long event will not teach basic concepts that is normally covered in mold remediation training.

This is an 8-hour intensive course on Thursday taught by Greg Weatherman, aerobioLogical Solutions. Attendance in this course, a passing score on a quiz, and Conference attendence will provide a Certificate of Competency and be eligible to be listed on the SurvivingRemediation.com contractor website used by mold patients around the country.

This course will be beneficial to remediators so they can market and work with those who suffer from asthma, COPD, CIRS, etc.  It’s a valuable and underserved market compared to the saturated insurance claims market.  Many common remediation techniques are based on success with spores that settle with gravity.  Fungal fragments are smaller and penetrate deeper into the body for inflammatory health effects.  The 3rdEdition of the IICRC S520 (Dec 2015 - ANSI) added fungal fragments to the condition 1, 2 and 3 definitions.  This is a gray area for the industry that leads to client complaints for health effects from mold. This course will cover what is necessary to successfully address fungal fragments with mold remediation to avoid costly complaints.

1)   We will cover simple physiology concepts to understand exposure to the lungs and the central nervous system.

2)  Particle behavior based on size will be presented with the conditions that allow exposure in the indoor environments with moisture control problems with basic microbiology concepts

3)   Basic mechanical ventilation techniques will be discussed to understand what can and can’t be done with HEPA air filtration devices.

4)  Containment techniques for different architectural situations will be covered.

5)   Understanding what can and can’t be done with HEPA vacuuming based on science.

6)   Understanding the limitations with antimicrobials, enzymes and cleaning agents.  This is important for chemical sensitivity.  A remediator may not know the client is chemically sensitive until they make the mistake using the wrong types of products.

7)   We will cover various test methods so remediators can understand how it impacts their work.

8)   How to work with financially limited clients with health problems for a profit without increasing liability.

9)   Air duct cleaning:  NADCA vs ACCA

10)  Marketing to physicians and their patients.

11)  Are you basing your theories on marketing or science?
