The American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) requested that Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) give guidance for those seeking Florida licensing for mold assessor or remediation – who missed the deadline for grandfathering – but have previously taken an ACAC certification examination. Their response:
Any applicant, who has taken the ACAC proctored examination and passed in any of the categories already approved by Florida as meeting the Florida standards, will be accepted. However, in order to obtain a Florida license in Mold profession, they must also meet the rest of the Florida requirements as stated in Statute Chapter 468, Part XVI, Florida Statutes
The categories of ACAC proctored examinations approved are the CIE, CIEC and CMC for the Florida Mold Assessor and CMR, CMRS and CIES for the Florida Mold Remediator.
