It's essential to develop defined hypotheses and investigative strategies to accurately interpret data from mold sampling. You will learn methods for developing hypotheses from initial interviews with clients and onsite visual inspections and outlining sampling strategies to test these hypotheses. You will also learn how to interpret data from each type of strategy and suggestions for presenting data to clients.
• Lack of guidelines and interpretation of data
• Using field/lab notebooks
• Analytical and sampling methods and what they tell you
• Hypothesis development
• Mold investigative strategies for specific hypothesis categories
• Interpreting data based on hypotheses and well-designed strategies
• Using MoldScore and MoldRange in data interpretation
