This is a 7-part, interactive course.  Knowing which chemicals to use, when to use them and how to use them as part of the overall project is the goal of this course. In part 1, we will visit the terminology and the recent trends to equip you to make better decisions for your team and project.


Part 2 will review guidelines on cleaning and remediation methods for clean water damage. We will also cover some possible situations and useful methods or techniques for remediation.

Part 3 of this course is designed to inform remediation contractors and consultants of the requirements and numerous options available to help their team remain safe and healthy while in a hazardous work environment.

Part 4 of this course will provide some basic science to help understand how mold happens. It will also provide examples of recommended building materials, their assembly, and building systems that both invite and avert mold growth.

Part 5 will help the project leader better plan and lead remediation projects, making more efficient use of technicians, equipment, barriers and supplies. Using numerous examples of good and bad engineering controls, we will lead you to a better understanding of how you can creatively arrange and maintain isolated work enclosures to the success of the project and health of the occupant.

Part 6 shows you how to “set the bar” so the technicians know what to do, clients are happy, and each project has a better chance of profit and success.
