IICRC Applied Microbial Remediation Course

Course Summary

The IICRC Applied Microbial Remediation Course is an excellent learning experience for people who are involved in carpet cleaning, water damage, mould remediation of any kind or looking to gain more skills and knowledge in mould remediation. This course gives you a thorough understanding of the different types of mould, the risks associated with mould and best practice for mould remediation.


What do you do when you come across mould on a water damage restoration job? Do you understand the risks that mould can pose to your clients? Do you know how to educate your clients about these issues? Do you use best practice strategies to remediate mould? Do you know what risk minimisation strategies to put in place to protect yourself on the job?

These are just some of the questions that are covered in the 4-day IICRC Applied Microbial Remediation course. The topics covered in this hands-on interactive course include various mould remediation guidelines, microbiology, health effects of mould, work procedures, PPE, microbial sampling, sewage backflows and structural damage.

You will walk away from this course not only with the skills to perform mould remediation jobs to the highest standard, but also with the skills to be able to educate your clients (whether they be domestic, commercial or insurance jobs) about what you are doing and why you are doing it.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the risks associated with mould remediation and implement risk minimisation strategies
