Continuing Education Requirements for Mold Assessors

While not every state requires mold assessment and remediation licenses, the ones that do also require some continuing education along the way. It is important to know what those requirements are, not only to satisfy state regulations but also to grow in the industry.

What Are the Continuing Education Requirements for Mold Assessors?

Most states that require mold assessment and remediation licenses also require 14 hours of continued education prior to the expiration date of the license. In other words, as a licensed mold assessor, you have until your license’s expiration to “learn and renew.”

Within the 14 hours of continued education are a few different categories. 6 hours of moisture intrusion training, 4 hours of mold safety training, 2 hours of reports, and 2 hours of standards of practice make up the requirements. These training hours simply ensure that you are up-to-date on the safest methods of testing for and handling mold.

Fortunately, you can continue your mold education online, so no need to squeeze in classes somewhere. It is a great idea to enroll in online mold classes for both furthering your education as well as for initial training.

Benefits of Continuing Education as a Mold Assessor

Even if your state does not legally require you to continue your education in the mold industry, doing so is extremely beneficial for your business. Clients want to know that they are hiring a reputable professional, and many educational opportunities provide several advantages.

●  Networking Opportunities

When you attend classes, seminars, conferences, etc. (even online), it allows you to network with others in the industry. Connecting with fellow professionals is great from a work standpoint, but it can also help you move up the ladder (if that is your desire) and even place you in contact with new clients.

●  Business Expansion

To piggyback off the networking opportunities, the more you learn, the bigger you can grow. It is impossible to expand without the knowledge and resources to back your expansion. Furthering your mold education is just one way to improve your business and move forward in 2021.

●  Influence from Industry Leadership

There is a lot to learn from leaders in the industry, especially about marketing and customer relations. Furthering your education as a mold assessor or remediator is great for both your mold techniques and your business techniques. Learn from people who have been where you are. Independent contractors of every type always do well to watch leaders in their industry.

●  Higher Quality Work

Of course, the better trained you are, the more equipped you are to perform high-quality jobs. No one wants to give less than their best, and furthering your education ensures that you can do that.

●  Satisfied Clients

A happy by-product of high-quality work is a satisfied customer. The happier your clients are with you, the easier it is to obtain new clients and grow your business. Customer relationships matter and it all comes back to how much you want to grow in experience and technique.
