Greg, Everything you did in April is posted correct? If not let me know.
Yup, both my HI & Mold license renewed through the NACHI state approved Florida online system.
Mine renewed as well. Thanks INachi!
Mine are done, thanks InterNachi. Now I need the Contractors CEUs
Me too. I just need the 5 crap hours. iNACHI should get going on those for approval.
Thanks iNACHI for the rest
All done as well !
Division One Contractors License complete—14 hours
Home Inspector License complete ----14 hours
Mold Assessor-Remediator license complete----14 hours
A recommendation: Took Dr. Gary Rosen’s mold course, very very good and FREE. Highly recommend this course to everyone whether your in the mold business or not it will make you a better inspector. Check it out its FREE at: www.free-mold-training.org with great links to free information about inspecting guidelines. The material is all downloadable (PDF) so you can save and have as a reference, pretty cool stuff.
For the multiple inspection firms out there ALL you inspectors should take this course.
Thanks for the link, looks real good… is there any catch we should know about?
No catch at all----all free !
This is awesome, thanks! I emailed the website and Gary called me back and answered all my questions, awesome find for me education wise, thanks so much!
Thanks Fred, I got notice of that one but forgot about it. I will be taking the course as soon as I have time. I am also getting my real mold CEU’s with NORMI in June. The instructor is the president of NORMI…can’t go wrong there.
Also, I understood as a home inspector we can take samples for mold testing as long as it’s an added service we do during a home inspection. I was told as of 2012 that is the case, however I’m trying to find any laws or rules that support that. Is that true? Where can I find any info on that? Thanks
I’ll check the DBPR site. And I’ll re-upload, if needed. Then check your account again in a couple days.
I do see that it was uploaded at the same time as Nick’s CE submission, and his went through into his DBPR account. I’m confident we’ll get your DBPR account completely filled with CE.
I think it sucks and he is trying to make his own standard, he quotes the EPA when it fits him and then says it wrong in other areas.
Seems like a huge gidden agenda and thinks this will do nothing but get people in trouble…what are you going to say in court…but Dr. Rosen told me…good luck with that.
Russ, I did come away from the course with the same feeling so to speak in regards to EPA vs IICRC . I think Gary pushes the “Green” portion of the remediation process over the IICRC process of using Biocides, so his opions lean more to EPA. So that part of the course is a little confusing. But overall I thought that the course was very educational and thought by mentioning here would help a lot of inspectors learn a lot about water intrusion and HVAC systems whether they do mold or not. After all where can you get quality education for free other than being a member of interNACHI.
Hi, Greg. I just double checked this situation, and it turns out that you only entered your home inspector license into the course system. Therefore, you only received credit in your DBPR home inspector account.
To receive CE credit in your DBPR mold assessor account, you have to enter your mold assessor license. And I see that you did enter it, but only recently. So, I’ll make sure your mold CE credits are uploaded into your DBPR mold assessor account to fulfill all of your mold assessor requirements. No problem.
Everyone, be sure to enter all of your state/province license #s into the InterNACHI education system at http://www.nachi.org/state-licenses.htm to immediately receive state/provincial credit properly, and to avoid confusion.
If Russ hates it must be good. :mrgreen:
Its great! Everyone should go and see how this guy works. It is marketing 211 at its best.
This guy rode the Chinese Drywall to the hilt and made a ton of money doing so. But apparently that gravy train has all but dried up, so a new guy who is going to be the Messiah for Mold is Gold!
I only read a portion of his crap before a little vomit started to burn my throat. His books, teaching and all the other crap is nothing but marketing at its finest!
If you throw enough material at people and a big degree, BOOM YOUR that authority on it! So many marketing people tell you that to be considered a leader in your industry you have to write educational books and then GIVE THEM AWAY…Hell look at NACHI!
John Eggen has been teaching this marketing method for years.
Now this guy, who is a MOLD REMEDIATOR, want to have absolutely no checks and balances. he wants to use inferior tools such as shop vacs and 1 4 mil bag instead of two 6 mils bags that EVERYONE of authority says to use. But him, because he is Dr. ROSEN!
So he wants to walk into a house, assess it then clean it then test it. What a load of crap that it. How about a party who has no financial gain, inspect it and come up with the protocol? When it is all done they come back and make sure it was done right and test? Seems logical to me. Keeps everyone in check, unbiased people doing the assessment.
This guys BS is nothing but a marketing ploy and should be stopped ASAP. Checks and balances are a good thing.
So for the people who read it, keep in mind this guy makes money doing remediation work. I bet you will see it very clearly, once you know his motives.
His class if free and if you ask me it is overpriced! Most of it is pure crap and will do nothing but get assessors into trouble. Once again, follow what you want, the EPA, OSHA, IICRC…whomever you want to. But a written standard that has been around is a ton better than Dr. Rosen, said I could!
Russell, what guy are you talking about?
Oh, wait, I found him: Dr. Rosen.
