Course Outline

Molds have existed for over 400 million years. Every one of us is exposed to mold spores on a daily basis. However, concern about indoor exposure to mold has increased in recent years, along with public awareness that exposure to mold can cause a variety of health effects and symptoms, such as severe allergic reactions.
