This training consists of three days of hands-on workshops, with special emphasis on assessing and writing protocols for real estate transactions and insurance claims.  You'll learn about the following:

  • industry standards of practice and mold safety;
  • moisture intrusion and mold;
  • mold report writing;
  • remediation protocols; and
  • water and mold inspections for insurance carriers.

You'll also have the option of taking the Florida Mold Assessor/Remediator Licensing Exam. This training will allow you to earn Continuing Education credits and also provides the initial training you'll need for the included mold assessor and/or remediator licensing exam.

You must attend the full three days in order to receive initial Florida license training credit and to take the exam. To receive only 14 hours of Florida Mold Continuing Education credit, you must attend the first two days of the mold training.

DBPR MOLD LICENSING EXPERIENCE/EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

In addition to passing the licensing exam given at the end of this training class, the State of Florida has an Experience requirement, which is detailed in the DBPR Mold License Application Form instructions.
To summarize the experience requirement, there are two options:

Option A

Four years of related experience (home inspections apply), where 15 home inspections in one year equal one year's experience, for a total of 60 jobs over four years, AND a high school diploma with no particular higher education. (Note that the high school diploma is a check-off on the application; you don't have to submit a copy.)

Option B

One year of related experience AND an AA Degree or higher in the sciences. A list of the sciences is on the application instructions. In this case, you must submit a copy of your transcripts showing a minimum of 30 semester credit hours in any of the science subjects listed.

Notes on Experience:

  • You don't need to have taken any mold samples for the 60 jobs. The application says "experience in conducting microbial sampling or investigations," and a home inspection qualifies as an investigation.
  • You can combine different types of experience, such as home inspections, insurance adjusting, water mitigation, storm repairs, remodeling, etc., as long as you can list experience that is related to the mold and water damage field, and it was legally performed work.
  • There is no requirement stating that the experience must have taken place in Florida.
  • There is no requirement stating that such work must have been performed in the last four consecutive years.

FINGERPRINTS REQUIREMENT:

The DBPR requires new fingerprints even if you have been fingerprinted for other departments or other state agencies. The ORI number that you provide the fingerprinting agency is "Mold Remediation or Assessment FL 924260Z." You can be fingerprinted before or after the training class and exam, but you must submit current fingerprinting to complete your application.
