Program Summary:

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

CMIs and CMCs possess verified knowledge in disciplines related to microbial investigations and sampling. The certification examinations cover a wide range of bioaerosols and their potential health effects. They also deal with microbial sampling procedures and equipment.
