NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspector, is happy to announce that it received confirmation today from ASHI®, the American Society of Home Inspectors, that after reviewing the course material, speaker qualification, class length, etc. for content, quality and pertinence to home inspection professionals, announced that participants who successfully attend the designated program are eligible to receive the number of Continuing Education Credits (CEs) in the amount of 1 hour for 1 hour.  An example of the designation on each applicable course website will read as follows: Certified Mold Assessor Course is approved for 24 hours of ASHI® Continuing Education Credits.

“Many Home Inspectors in the State of New York do not realize that they will be required to get licensed in New York as a Mold Assessor,” said Doug Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI.  “We have been training Home Inspectors in Florida for years on the assessment process because they are often in situations where their clients ask about probable mold contamination.  The professional Home Inspector avoids the discussion unless he is trained.  For New York to be pro-active about filling this need is pretty impressive.  Our New York approved courses for Assessor, Remediation Contractor and Abatement Worker will provide the information Home Inspectors need to do their job correctly and, thus, avoid litigation.”

ASHI® has over 2200 members in the State of New York and over 3000 in the State of Florida so we have a lot of opportunity to train Home Inspectors,” said Linda Eicher, National Training Director for Best Training School.  “Attending our licensing class and getting their re-certification credits toward their ASHI® Certification is a win-win for us and them. NORMI provides training throughout the US and Canada for licensure and certification for mold professionals.”

The courses now approved by ASHI® include New York Mold Assessor, New York Remediation Contractor, New York Abatement Worker, Florida Mold Related Services Assessor, Florida Mold Related Remediator, NORMI Certified Mold Assessor, NORMI Certified Mold Remediator and NORMI Certified Mold Worker.  For more information on classes or certifications contact NORMI at 877.251.2296 or email support@normi.org
