Mold in Schools and Commercial Buildings
This Internet course presents guidelines for the remediation/cleanup of mold and moisture problems in schools and commercial buildings; these guidelines include measures designed to protect the health of building occupants and remediators.
Taking this course, individuals with little or no experience with mold remediation should be able to make a reasonable judgment as to whether the situation can be handled in-house. It will help those in charge of maintenance to evaluate an in-house remediation plan or a remediation plan submitted by an outside contractor. Contractors and other professionals who respond to mold and moisture situations in commercial buildings and schools may also want to refer to these guidelines.
In order to receive credit for this course the participant must successfully complete a series of quizzes designed to test his/her knowledge of the subject presented in this course. To successfully complete this course, the participant must obtain an aggregate score of all the quizzes of 70% or greater.

- Molds and their health effects in humans
- How to prevent mold
- How to plan for mold remediation
- How to conduct mold remediation
- And, how to communicate with the building occupants about the remediation process
