Training: Mold

On January 29, 2015, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed a bill requiring that assessors and contractors in the mold remediation industry and their workers are properly trained and licensed. Accordingly, the licensing requirements for mold contractors, assessors, and workers take effect on January 1, 2016.

Big Apple Occupational Safety Inc. has been accredited by the New York State Department of Labor to provide Mold Abatement Worker, Mold Remediation Contractor and Mold Assessor Training programs.

The Mold program will require that assessors, contractors and their workers in the mold remediation industry are properly trained and licensed. The Department of Labor enforces the New York State Labor Law, which will require that a licensed mold assessor perform initial assessment and final inspection work and a separate licensed mold remediation contractor perform the cleanup and removal work.

The law requires the following to ensure the proper remediation of mold:

  • Licensing of assessors, contractors and workers
  • A written mold remediation plan, prepared by a licensed mold assessment contractor

Mold Training Programs Offered:

  • Mold Abatement Worker - 2 Days
  • Mold Remediation Contractor - 3 Days
  • Mold Assessor - 4 Days
