Get Licensed Now!
Do you perform mold inspections in the state of New York? A new state law requires you to get a NY Mold Assessor License. The deadline was January 1, 2016!
What must you do to qualify?
You must attend a state-approved 4-day course and pass the exam administered on the last day. The only other requirements are to be 18 years old and have a NY state issued identification. Out of state students can get a non-drivers ID card by visiting the DMV (http://dmv.ny.gov/). New York does not have any mold experience requirements.
Indoor Sciences is available to teach private classes to groups interested in the NY Mold Assessor License. Call 877-426-2855 for more information.
For public classes for Mold Assessor, Mold Remediation Contractor and Mold Abatement Worker, we are referring students to: nymoldlicense.com.
To register, either call 877-426-2855 or sign up online here: NY Licensed Assessor Course.
Who does this regulation apply to?
Section 933 of Article 32 of the New York State Labor Law describes who is exempt from needing a license for mold assessment and remediation in New York.
