The LSU AgCenter LaHouse Resource Center will conduct a mold control and remediation training course next month.

The class will be held between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Oct. 21-23 at LaHouse in Baton Rouge.

Satisfactory completion of the course fulfills the initial 24-hour education requirement for a Mold Remediation Contractor license in Louisiana. It provides crucial knowledge with the hands-on training contractors and technicians need to safely and effectively perform mold remediation.

AgCenter housing specialist Claudette Reichel said, "Our course not only includes training in industry standards but also teaches key mold, building science and moisture insights needed to diagnose causes and provide long-term control. That is what clients need and want the most."

This training course qualifies for Louisiana Incumbent Worker Training Program tuition reimbursement for eligible employers and counts as 24 CEUs for Louisiana residential contractors.

For more information or to register, go to or contact Reichel at (225) 578-7913.
