normi™ certified remediator for sensitized individuals (Ncrsi™)
The NCRSI™ is a two-day advanced remediator course that trains the mold professional on a remediation protocol specifically designed to better meet the needs of sensitized occupants and high-risk individuals. The course is offered through NORMI with the primary instruction provided by Wonder Makers Environmental.
This course provides 14 CEUs for the Florida MRS License, course #302, and CEs toward any IICRC certification.
Although substantial progress has been made in the last two decades in developing appropriate procedures, industry guidelines, and even regulations regarding mold remediation; most of those efforts have been directed toward remediation that produces an environment that is safe for typical occupants. However, experience has shown that such "standard" remediation projects, even when done in full compliance with the current industry standard of care, often are not enough to create a safe environment for individuals who have become sensitized to mold.
The current medical data explains that the percentage of the population with a genetic predisposition to mild mold sensitivity is nearly 20%. Of that group, 1-3% can develop a much more severe sensitivity to mold exposure. Often the trigger to real health problems is a poor mold remediation project. Once the sensitization has occurred the first step in assisting the ill individual is to stop dismissing their concerns as bogus. This class is for assessors and contractors who want to understand the specific steps necessary to evaluate and correct mold problems that bedevil sensitized individuals.
The NCRSI class is offered through NORMI with the primary instruction provided by Wonder Makers Environmental. This combination means that the certification provided to successful class participants meets the qualifications of the state of Florida for continuing education credits for both mold assessors and remediators and carries the third-party credibility of a nationally recognized not-for-profit trade association, NORMI.

IT STARTS WITH AWARENESS:
The awareness that some occupants are sensitized to mold has led to the development of specialized practices and procedures for projects to assist individuals in this high-risk group. In the past, these specialized techniques were learned the hard way as contractors dealt in a trial-and- error approach to adapt regular remediation practices for their customers who were more
susceptible than normal to mold, mycotoxins and other contaminants frequently found in water-damaged buildings.
WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR SPECIALIZED REMEDIATION?
One of the things that sets mold remediation apart from responding to water losses and fires is the medical component of many mold cases. Often, structural mold is not visible, which results in occupants unknowingly living or working in mold-infested environments. This can lead to the
development of sensitivities to mold and other indoor contaminants.
TWO-DAY CERTIFICATION CLASS WITH CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS
