To qualify for an Asbestos Investigator Certification, an individual must have an “Inspector Certificate” issued by NYSDOL; and two years of documented working experience in building survey/hazard assessment for ACM and three years of other documented building survey related experience. In lieu of experience, an applicant may substitute technical college education and/or professional registration.
NYSDOL and DEP issue Asbestos Investigator Certifications and Inspector Certificates in the form of photo identification cards. The initial DEP certificate is valid for at least two years but not more than three years depending on the applicant’s birthday. The NYSDOL certificate is valid for one year only.
