Mold Removal Specialist (MRS)

The IICRC has developed a certification, the Mold Removal Specialist (MRS), for professionals in the mold remediation industry.

What is the Mold Removal Specialist Certification?

The Mold Removal Specialist (MRS) certification recognizes professionals who have the knowledge and skills necessary to: perform mold remediation for structures and contents; design and maintain containment; control pressure differentials; safely work in mold contaminated environments; understand common remediation work  practices review protocols; design and implement remediation processes;  understand and follow industry standards and legal requirements; recognize conditions conducive for causing mold growth; and prevent amplification and contamination for a variety of building environment types.

Who Qualifies?

Anyone who has been in the mold industry for at least one year qualifies to sit for the IICRC Mold Removal Specialist Exam. The Mold Removal Specialist (MRS) certification does not replace the current Applied Microbial Restoration Technician (AMRT) exam; it is an additional level of certification..

What is the difference between the MRS and the AMRT Certifications?

There are no continuing education requirements – only an annual renewal fee of $150 and a re-certification exam every five years for a fee of $200.
While strongly encouraged, no training is required; work experience is the only prerequisite.
MRS is the first IICRC exam not associated with a specific training course.
