CIE & CIEC “The Council-certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE) and the Council-certified Indoor Environmental Consultant (CIEC) investigate indoor air quality problems. For example, a CIE or CIEC can identify mold and moisture issues during a commercial investigation or a home inspection. These professionals have verified knowledge of disciplines related to indoor air quality, including HVAC, building science, mold and microbial issues, industrial hygiene.”

These three Certifications require years of experience, rigorous examination and approval of the ACAC board.

Thank you so much for this valuable information. Its important to let ppl know what's what, especialy when hiring folks to treat for mold, which previously was sometimes an area where ppl who didn't know what they were doing would be engaged in, even getting payment through ppls insurance companies! Education is invaluable, and I'm happy you took the time to inform the residents of Collier County on my website here. I hope it helps somebody out there. -ken
