    • FAQ from TDLR Website: Do I still apply to take the examination before I submit my application for licensure?
      No. Applicants for mold assessment technician, mold assessment consultant and mold remediation contractor must first submit an application for licensure. This can be done by submitting a paper application or an online application. The application fee and all additional documentation to show proof of required training, insurance, education and experience must also be submitted. Once your application is approved by TDLR, you will receive notice from TDLR’s exam vendor, PSI, that you are eligible to schedule and take your required examination. PSI will send your examination score to TDLR. Once TDLR receives notice that you have passed your exam, and all other requirements have been met, the license will be issued.
  7. Pay required fee ($450 for remediation contractor license, $850 for remediation company, $50 for remediation worker)
  8. Make application with proof of insurance, verifiable evidence of education/experience requirements, & course completion certificate
