Announcing the CRIE

The American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) has a new entry-level certification for those conducting indoor environmental assessments.  This new certification does not require field experience and is intended as the first step toward becoming an accredited professional IAQ/IEQ investigator.

The Council-certified Residential Indoor Environmentalist (CRIE) must successfully pass a closed-book examination that covers topics relevant to residential indoor environmental investigations – including identifying IAQ/IEQ contaminants, their sources and health effects.  The examinations are conducted at one of the more than 600 approved proctoring locations around the world.

Candidates for the CRIE can self-study; however, ACAC recommends those seeking training courses to contact our office for an independent course provider near you or search those accredited by the Foundation for Accredited Learning (

ACAC was founded more than twenty years ago.  It is the only credentialing body with independently-accredited programs through the Council for Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB) for those who specialize in assessment and remediation of the indoor environment.  Find more information about ACAC at
