Certification Information:

In addition to completing the course and scoring at least 70% on the course exam, you must meet the individual state requirements to receive a state license. This generally involves completing the state application, paying a fee, and meeting the experience/education requirements. However, EPA, Indiana, and most other states have no educational or experience requirements for asbestos abatement workers.

Our courses are accepted for licensing in Indiana and Indiana and in states requiring only EPA approval, such as Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio. Call us regarding other states you might be interested in.
