OK guys… I trying to look at this in a positive way as IAQ is valuable service to provide our customers.
A few questions… Is it correct that I can be a certified IAQ inspector by taking a free mold course??
Looking at information provided here there are 8 sources/ testing of IAQ, are you saying that the mold course covers the other 7??
How much do I have to spend on equipment to provide IAQ services and pay to a lab to provide reports?
If I market my self as a certified IAQ inspector and fail to test for lead, asbestos or ? because
the home is new or newer, or I did not perform a radon test, or other air quality tests not listed, only to find later from my customers attorney because little Johnny is dieing ] that the home was built over a dump that contained asbestos, radon gases or other items that I did not test for, what is my liability and the certifiers liabilty then?? Is the certifier insured.
All of this is is based on that I did advertize and was advertized by nickie as a certified IAQ tester.
People can lose money by having unexperenced “certified” inspectors miss something on an inspection.
People do die everday from poor air quality, who is going to accept that risk / liability when providing a certificiation to a person by completing a free course and test???
