Mold Beyond Myth

Why take this course?

As more homes exhibit environmental hazards and government requirements become stricter and numerous, the liabilities associated with indoor mold exposure continue to grow. More than ever, it is vital that agents, brokers and investors understand the facts and fiction regarding mold and its remediation.

Because there are NO requirements for mold remediation certification and training in Pennsylvania, your basic knowledge as a real estate professional is an important component of your overall financial success. Our training is designed to address the facts and knowledge needed to make you the expert in the room.

This seminar is taught by Joe Murphy of Phoenix Restoration & Environmental Services Inc.
