Toxic Mould Support Group Australia
I came across this group a year ago though Facebook. They have a fairly large support group on Facebook of over 1200 members. This is a fantastic resource where you can feel safe asking people questions who have been in the same situation before. Illness cause by mould can be devastating and its good to know people out there who can help you through this season.
Ermi testing has recently become more popular type of mould testing as of late as it is able to test mould down to DNA level. It is particularly important if you need to know the types of mould in your property down to a subspecies level. It is also important in establishing and providing proof in finding the cause of the mould damage.

Mould Removal Courses Australia
The standard for training in Australia in mould remediation is through the iicrc (the institute of inspection cleaning and restoration certification). All mould remediation specialists in Australia should be qualified in this standard. The two companies in Australia which facilitate this training as far as I am aware are
Another organisation which facilitates training (not IICRC) but still quality is:
