The Mould Testing Technician training is the only nationally accredited course of its kind in Australia. It consists of 3 days of online training with an instructor followed by 12 weeks of self-directed online learning AND field training. In light of the travel restrictions brought on by COVID, with regards to the field training you may choose from ONE of the following 4 options:

  • Option 1: Hire the equipment from ACES and conduct an assessment of your own home. The cost to hire the equipment AND take 6 laboratory samples is $395 (this includes $420 worth of lab testing). An additional security deposit of $400 will be required, however this will be refunded once the equipment is returned in good condition. 
  • Option 2: Partner up with an approved Building Biologist in your state (if there is one) and go on a job and write your report on this. The Building Biologist will be remunerated for their time. No additional cost to you but you must bring a full face respirator. 
  • Option 3: Restorers or hygienists or remediators or anyone who have their own equipment (moisture meter, indoor air quality meter, biopump and thermal imaging camera), may conduct an assessment of a water-damaged home of their choice.
  • Option 4*: Wait until lockdown ends and attend two days of field training in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth or the Gold Coast (see dates below). Students are responsible for bringing their own full face respirator (P3) preferably one that has been fit tested, in order to participate in the field training.
