Attention Florida Mold Assessors and Remediators!

From the IAQA As you already may know, according to the new Mold law passed by the state of Florida, all individuals performing mold assessment and/or remediation must be licensed through the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation as of July 1, 2010. This law was amended last May to give applicants more time to complete necessary education, experience, and testing requirements. The new date to be grandfathered in is March 1, 2011. To find out more about this bill and application requirements, visit their website HERE.

In case you’re scrambling to get your education verification in order or need help studying up for the exam, consider taking a course through an IAQA course provider! IAQA courses have gone through extensive review by a board of industry experts and are approved to prepare students for the certification exams offered through the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC). IAQA courses and ACAC exams have all been registered and approved by the state of Florida for the new Mold-Related Services Licensing program. To find out where IAQA courses are, visit our Education page HERE.

Of course, we are always here to answer questions. Feel free to contact us at or 301-231-8388.

Thank you. IAQA Staff
