Questions & Answers About
Mold Certification and Accreditation

Q. How is the Professional Certification Institute able to certify mold inspectors and mold contractors?

A. Almost every industry, trade, and profession in the U.S.A. and Canada has its own, private, non-governmental educational and certification program to train and to certify or qualify professionals in their respective industry or trade. For example, the National Association of Realtors has a number of different certification programs for various real estate specialties. Governmental agencies do not establish industry certification programs---that's the job of each respective industry, trade, or profession.  Professional Certification Institute is the leading certification program for the mold testing and mold remediation industries.  If you enter the terms "mold inspector" or "certified mold inspector" into most internet search engines, you will discover that most search engines already recognize those search terms as being associated with the websites:, or, or with one of our large number of other sister indoor air quality websites.  You will be a board-certified Certified Mold Inspector and Certified Mold Contractor by the training board and faculty of the Professional Certification Institute [P.C.I.]. has established [and maintains] the highest and most effective national standards for both mold testing and mold remediation.

Q. Can I earn a high income in mold inspection and mold remediation?

A. A recent Wall Street Journal [Aug., 2002] article described the mold inspector and mold remediator profession as one of the hot job opportunities in today's business world. The Journal noted: "Paul Brennan, an instructor (former) at the Professional Certification Institute, says that opportunities for 'certified mold inspectors' and 'certified mold remediators' are 'steadily growing' across the country. Mold inspectors can earn as much as $100,000 annually while remediators -- who rip out mold-infested areas --can take home much more, Mr. Brennan reports."

Q. What about the retreat of insurance companies from covering mold problems?

A. The fast-growing mold remediation industry will survive the insurance company retreat from covering mold problems, and continue to flourish, for a number of reasons:

  1. Even though insurance companies may state that a policy has no mold coverage or only a limited amount of mold coverage, if the policy provides for coverage in the event of roof leaks, water line breaks, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. that can directly cause mold infestation, plaintiffs attorneys will often be very successful in making insurance companies pay for mold that directly results from specifically insured water intrusion sources. To protect themselves against water and mold claims, many insurance companies' homeowner's insurance policies now exclude even water damage!!!

  2. The liability of mortgage lenders for mold coverage when they finance properties containing existing mold infestation is a rapidly-growing source of mold remediation funds. Again, you can thank the legal profession for this because mold litigation is the hottest, fastest-growing lawsuit field today with thousands of attorneys pursuing mold cases actively as plaintiff's counsel.

  3. When home residents get real sick from mold infestation, many will find a way to pay for their mold remediation, including such financial strategies as: (a) getting a second mortgage against their home equity; (b) borrowing from their local credit union or other loan sources; (c) borrowing funds from friends and relatives; and (d) selling their investment assets, second car, boat, RV, other personal property, etc.

  4. Mold remediation of office buildings, commercial buildings, schools and other government buildings, retail stores, warehouses, and industrial buildings is very financially feasible for business and governmental owners of such non-residential buildings. Commercial mold remediation will be a multi-billion dollar market yearly just by itself.

  5. There exist several effective, low-cost, secondary mold remediation procedures that can be used when there is no insurance coverage, or otherwise when money is a problem in mold remediation. Visit: Kill Mold For Less System.

Q. Will my P.C.I. mold training and certification program enable me to work in my own state as a Certified Mold Inspector and Certified Mold Remediator, etc.?

A. Your P.C.I. training and certification enable you to do mold inspection, mold testing, and mold remediation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories. Your prospective clients will appreciate your training and certification and hire you because of it. At the present time, NO state licenses mold inspectors and mold remediators. You need to establish yourself as a mold inspector and mold remediator right now so that you will be "grandfathered in" [protected as an existing mold professional if your state ever does license mold inspectors and mold contractors].

Q. Do I need to certify each employee in my mold testing
or mold contracting company?

A. No, just one person [you] would be wonderful. Whoever is going to publicly deal with prospective customers from a sales and public relations perspective should be a Certified Mold Inspector and/or Certified Mold Contractor. The employees who carry out your orders [in doing the correct mold removal procedures and steps] are working directly under your authority and responsibility as a certified mold professional. This is similar to a licensed medical doctor who is helped by his non-licensed nurses, medical assistants, and office personnel in providing services to the patients under the direct authority and supervision of himself, the licensed physician. Of course, it is very much to your company's advantage to have P.C.I. train and certify several of your company personnel.

Q. How will I keep my mold training current and updated in the future?

A. Your mold training does NOT end when the seminar ends because the Mold Institute keeps teaching you continuously through: (a)  mold seminar graduates who wish to do so will complete an optional 90 day apprenticeship program under the watchful and helpful eyes of P.C.I. staffers; (b) you will receive prompt and complete answers to your phone and email questions and your requests for technical and marketing help; (c) you will receive technical and marketing suggestions provided to you in our frequent special UPDATE reports mailed to you; and (d) participate online in our annual internet convention----the 2005 PCI free annual convention will be via online internet conferencing, with all seminar attendees being online simultaneously and interactive via a special internet conference service. The date for  this first electronic annual PCI convention is Friday, April 29, 2005, 10 a.m. to 12 noon eastern time, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. eastern time [new materials presented in each of the two time sessions].

Q. Where and when is the next mold certification training seminars?

A. The March Utah mold training course is March 13-14-15. Our SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, mold training course is Fri-Sat-Sun, March 14-15-16. Our AKRON, OHIO, mold instruction and certification program is March 21 [7 p.m. onward], March 22 [morning and afternoon], and March 23 [mold remediation class in the morning, plus hands-on mold remediation training at a local mold contaminated house in the afternoon]. Location: Crown Plaza Quaker Square, 135 South Broadway, Akron OH 44308 Phone (330) 253 5970.

In addition to really great training, the seminar includes (a) a final written exam for certification; and (b) an OPTIONAL post-certification three-month apprenticeship training program. At the end of the third day,  you will need to answer correctly at least 90% of the multiple choice answers to important mold questions in a written exam to earn a certified designation. You can begin earning money immediately upon certification but you will be [only if you choose to participate] under the optional, helpful apprenticeship assistance of our Institute for your first 90 days as a certified mold professional, and you will pay an apprenticeship training fee of ten percent [10%] of your total mold testing and mold remediation revenue earned during the apprenticeship to P.C.I. to reimburse the Institute for the substantial staff time that will be expended by staffers to help you during your apprenticeship training.  The next hygienist training seminar will be via online instruction, with your required attendance at one of our 3 day mold training seminars.

Q. Who would be my business competitors in mold testing and mold remediation, and is there any government work to do?

A. Your main competition would be ill-trained, ill-informed individuals and companies who do an inadequate and inferior job of both mold testing and mold removal. Because you will be both a Certified Mold Inspector and Certified Mold Contractor from a strong certification agency, you and your words and actions will make you stand out as being an excellent mold inspector and mold contractor in the eyes of your prospective clients.  Government work would not be as important as private property work, but there are many governmental buildings overwhelmed with mold contamination.

Q. What equipment and supplies are needed to operate my mold inspection and mold remediation business?

A. Recommended mold testing and mold remediation equipment are available and used at each seminar location for your hands-on training. Equipment and supplies you need include [partial list] hidden moisture detector [$450], controlled air testing equipment [$233], fiber-optics inspection equipment [$400], digital hygrometer [$29], Air-O-Cell cassettes, carpet samplers [Air-O-Cell brand], mold culture plates, mold swabs, hand tools, power tools such as drills and saws ladders of various sizes, flash lights, industrial hepa filters, fans, negative air equipment, power planer, power sander, abrasive blasting, equipment, Mold Killer [benzalkonium chloride], Tim-Bor antimicrobial coating, hand pump sprayer, small electric sprayer, business cards, and magnetic signs for sides and back of your truck or car.  For mold remediation, a high quality industrial hepa filtration system to remove airborne mold spores during mold remediation is about $800.00. Easy to erect and use containment wall systems are about $400. Sprayers cost about $40 for applying mold killing disinfectants and antimicrobial protective coatings.

Q. I own a water and fire damage restoration company. How reliable are your test results? And if a professional uses your products and testing how reliable are they to hold up in a court of law. I have read a lot about litigation between Homeowners and Insurance companies. Or Employees and Employers. There was a case here in Ohio where the maintenance man and his crew removed mold in a hotel. Now, the maintenance guy has less than 57% of his lung capacity left. Not to mention the danger involved for the guests that were staying in the hotel.

A. Accurate mold testing depends on two factors. First, is to take the test samples in a comprehensive and thorough way to locate mold hidden inside walls, ceilings, floors, hvac equipment and ducts, crawl spaces, attics, and basements. That is why we thoroughly teach testing techniques and technology to professionals trained by the Professional Certification Institute. Second, is to have the test samples analyzed by a microbiologist and  mold laboratory with proven, long-time mold identification experience. That is why David Zwahlen is the lab director and microbiologist for the Mold Inspector Laboratory. David has over 27 years of hospital-based mold identification experience. He is registered with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, and he has both a bachelor's and master's degree in microbiology. With your accurate and professional testing techniques, plus the experienced and expert mold identification of the Mold Inspector Laboratory, the Certified Mold Inspector test results will stand up in court as strong evidence.
