Map and Directions

 It is not enough to know that something should be done.
Contractors must know why it should be done, 
the key to avoiding costly or hazardous outcomes
and to using the most effective practical solution.

This course provides technicians and contractors with the information and method training needed to successfully perform safe and effective mold remediation -- with the goals of restoring and maintaining a healthy indoor environment and property protection.  The course will cover industry standards and procedures as well as provide participants with a working knowledge of mold characteristics, moisture dynamics and building science principles that are crucial to both mold removal and control. 

Satisfactory completion of this course fulfills the 24-hour initial technical training requirement for a Mold Remediation Contractor license in the state of Louisiana. (See course content below.)  For  information about additional training and requirements to obtain a licence, visit  Note that the professional application of biocide treatments in the state of Louisiana also requires Microbial Applicator certification by the La. Dept. Agiculture and Forestry (LDAF).

NEW – This course now also includes Microbial Pest Control Applicator training. The application of biocides to kill mold or to prevent mold growth for hire in Louisiana requires certification under the Microbial Pest Control Subcategory (8e). Applicants must take the LDAF General Standards Exam (free) and a category specific exam ($25). Individuals who seek certification must schedule an exam with and pay Louisiana Department of Agriculture & Forestry (LDAF) for the category specific exam ($25/exam).. LDAF is the only agency that can administer exams.
