As of July 1, 2010, the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC)
is the exclusive provider of mold license examinations for the state of Florida.
ACAC signed an exclusive contract with Florida’s Department of Business and
Professional Regulation (DBPR) whereby all applicants for licensure by
examination under Florida’s new Mold Related Services law must have passed
one of six ACAC certification exams.
Applicants for the Florida mold assessor license may take the
Council-certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE), Council-certified Indoor
Environmental Consultant (CIEC) or Council-certified Microbial Consultant
Applicants for the Florida mold remediator license may take the
Council-certified Microbial Remediator (CMR), Council-certified Microbial
Remediation Supervisor (CMRS) or Council-certified Indoor Environmental
Supervisor (CIES) examinations.
If you hold one of these ACAC certifications in good standing,
congratulations! You are already qualified for the Florida license. Simply

and complete the “License by Grandfathering” section.
Florida’s decision to rely on ACAC exams reinforces our position as the
industry leader for independent professional certifications. ACAC exams were
chosen in part because they are based on widely accepted industry texts, not
on proprietary training courses. They are developed by independent industry
experts according to stringent psychometric principles and administered in
compliance with international consensus standards. ACAC certifications are
also the only IAQ designations to earn third-party accreditation by the
Council for Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB), a
nationally-recognized accreditation body.
We are constantly working to enhance the value and visibility of ACAC
designations, and we are pleased to add Florida to our list of
accomplishments in this regard.
Rest assured that our work continues – not only have we won official
recognition for ACAC designations in Maryland and Arkansas, but we have also
entered into discussions with several other states who plan mold legislation
in the near future.
Did You Know?
When state governments require all mold professionals to be licensed, the
marketing advantage goes to those who hold an independent, accredited certification.
