Other Mold Credentials

A Council-certified Microbial Investigator (CMI) investigates microbial issues in the indoor environment. For example, a CMI can perform mold inspection, mold testing and bioaerosol sampling. A CMI can interpret lab results and design an effective remediation protocol. Finally, a CMI can perform post-remediation sampling to verify the
success of a remediation project.

A CMI has verified knowledge in disciplines related to microbial investigations and sampling. The CMI examination covers a wide range of bioaerosols and their potential health effects. The CMI exam also deals with microbial sampling procedures and equipment. Each CMI has demonstrated at least two years experience in microbial sampling, mold inspection or mold testing in one or more of the following settings: offices and commercial buildings; industrial structures; government facilities; schools and public buildings; healthcare facilities; and residential structures.

The Indoor Air Quality Council launched the credential in 1999. In 2006, the Council discontinued membership services and focused exclusively on credential program. In 2008, the Council broadened its focus to other industries and changed its name to the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC).
