Council-certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor


Council-certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor

The Council-certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor (CMRS) is a certification granted by the American Indoor Air Quality Council, a non-profit certifying body serving the indoor air quality industry. The CMRS is granted to professionals in microbial remediation who have passed an independent examination, demonstrated at least 5 years of documented field experience and whose files have passed a detailed review at the hands of the CMRS certification board, a volunteer panel of certified industry peers.

Professionals who hold the CMRS are certified to perform structural remediation, contents remediation and HVAC system remediation according to the latest industry standards and best practices. They are required to accumulate 40 hours of professional development activities every two years to maintain their certifications and are held to the American IAQ Council code of conduct, which is enforced by the CMRS certification board.

Created in 1999, the CMRS program was the first certification in the United States designed specifically for microbial remediators. It has since earned third-party accreditation from the [http://www.cesb.org Council for Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB)] and is administered in compliance with international standards for certification bodies, including ISO Standard 17024.

In May 2008, the Maryland legislature passed a law requiring applicants for a mold remediator's license to hold an American IAQ Council certification such as the CMRS. It was the first time an independent certifying body had been specified in a state law regulating the mold remediation industry. IAQ Council executives hailed the development as proof that the CMRS had truly become the industry's standard certification.
