  • "may inspect, sample, and identify visible mold, assuming the visible mold discovered during the home inspection is less 10 square feet in area," and
  • "is allowed to advertise mold testing, sampling, and inspections within the scope of licensure as a home inspector, so long as he/she does not use the terms 'certified mold assessor,' 'registered mold assessor,' 'licensed mold assessor,' 'mold assessor,' 'professional mold assessor,' or any combination thereof stating or implying licensure as a mold assessor."
