Weston, Florida - January 11, 2006 - Nick Gromicko, founder of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), the world's largest inspection trade association and James E. McDonnell, CEO of PRO-LAB, the world's leading provider of environmental laboratory testing services, announced the formation of two sister indoor air quality organizations and certifications. 
 
The International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2) will serve as a certifying body for inspectors who have fulfilled certain educational requirements in the area of inspecting the quality of indoor air.  This Association will promote the use of indoor environmental inspectors who carry the IAC2 Certified logo:
 
TM
 
 
 
 
The International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants, Inspectors, and Abatement Contractors (IAC3) will serve as a certifying body for abatement contractors who have fulfilled certain educational requirements in the areas of both inspecting the quality of indoor air and mitigating indoor air hazards.  This Association will promote the use of abatement contractors who carry the IAC3 Certified logo:
 
 TM
 
 
 
The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) has agreed to develop and administer the IAC2 and IAC3 certification programs with the condition that qualifying InterNACHI members be permitted to join IAC2 and use the IAC2 Certified logo at no charge to the InterNACHI member.  PRO-LAB has agreed to provide the required training and continuing education necessary to attain and maintain the certifications.  "The requirements to earn the IAC2 Certified designation are being developed now.  We expect to have something to announce at the InterNACHI Convention in February," said PRO-LAB's McDonnell.  The continuing education and training will focus primarily on mold, radon, asbestos and lead. 
 
Earlier in 2005 InterNACHI launched www.InspectorLocator.com a website which permits inspectors to advertise the ancillary inspection they offer www.nachi.org/ancillary.htm and permits consumers to search for inspectors based on the environmental inspections they offer. 
 
Several other domain names have been registered for the IAC2-IAC3 projects and these websites are under development including: breatheclean.org, breathecleanair.org, certifiedcleanair.org, cleanaircertified.com, cleanaircertified.org, iac2.org, iac2certified.com, iac2certified.org, iac3certified.com, iac3certified.org, iaccertified.com, iaccertified.org, iacertified.com, iacertified.org, iaciac.com, iaciac.org, iaciaciac.org, iaciaciac.com, iaqcertified.com, iaqcertified.org, indooraircertified.com, indooraircertified.org, moldcertified.org, radoncertified.com, radoncertified.org,
 
Also, the professional designation "Certified Mold Inspector", the trade association names"International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2)" and "International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants, Inspectors and Abatement Contractors (IAC3)" and the tag line "Bringing Clean Air to Life" have all be Trademarked.
 
"PRO-LAB already provides the best lab services, the biggest InterNACHI member discounts and the most advanced training at our events," said InterNACHI's Gromicko.  "I'm excited to be working with them on this project which will certainly result in InterNACHI members conquering their respective indoor air inspection markets."
