Overview

Would you like to become a Certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE)? This designation demonstrates that you understand how to create healthy homes and buildings by preventing, diagnosing, and resolving indoor environmental problems. This online program prepares you to pass the CIE examination through a series of video lectures on exam topics such as contaminants, health effects, building science, HVAC, equipment, assessments, mold remediation, and industry standards and guidelines. The course also covers practice questions in detail and provides a practice examination to ensure you succeed at becoming a Certified Indoor Environmentalist.  The CIE certification will demonstrate that you can do the following:

  • Understand how HVAC systems can prevent (and cause) IAQ problems
  • Apply current industry guidelines
  • Understand the fundamentals of building science
  • Diagnose, resolve, and prevent common IAQ problems
  • Comprehend the full spectrum of contaminants including mold, bacteria, volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, radon, triggers to asthma and allergies, and more
  • Understand and operate common IAQ instruments and equipment

Your clients want to be confident that they are hiring a trustworthy and competent consultant. One of the best ways to demonstrate your competency is to obtain a third-party accredited certification, such as the Certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE). The CIE certification is sponsored by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC).

The CIE Prep Course will prepare you to pass the CIE examination. The examination is offered at computerized testing centers throughout the US and beyond. Certain experience requirements and fees apply to students obtaining certification; however, no experience is required to participate in the CIE Prep course.

Upon successful completion of this program, you'll be able to do the following:

  • Pass the ACAC’s Certified Indoor Environmentalist examination
  • Understand the concepts contained in the CIE Required Body of Knowledge
  • Demonstrate the ACAC Required skills related to the following:
    • IAQ Contaminants and Health Effects
    • The Built Environment
    • HVAC
    • Equipment and assessments
    • Guidelines, Regulations, and Standards
    • Remediation

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites to taking the CIE Program. There are, however, experience requirements for those students wishing to take the optional certification exam by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC). ACAC requires a high school diploma or GED, along with two years of documented field experience related to indoor air quality. Questions regarding certification should be directed to ACAC.
