• An applicant may not qualify for licensure if he or she has had a mold related services license or a license in any related field revoked at any time or suspended within the previous 5 years or has been assessed a fine that exceeds $500 within the previous 5 years. A license in a related field includes, but is not limited to, licensure in real estate, construction, mold-related services, or building code administration or inspection.
