Mold Awareness Training
Mold Awareness Training instructs on what mold is, the hazards of mold contamination, and the basic principles behind mold remediation techniques. Many buildings and work sites, whether within processing, manufacturing, construction or oil and gas, have mold present within the facilities. Training has proven to be very informative to building owners, contractors, building managers and health workers who may encounter mold contamination problems.
