>> THE AMERICAN INDOOR AIR QUALITY COUNCIL, Glendale, Ariz., announced its certification exams comply with the consensus standards published by the Washington, D.C.-based American Educational Research Association, Washington-based American Psychological Association and Madison, Wis.-based National Council on Measurement in Education. Published as “Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing,” the national standards describe accepted procedures for test construction, evaluation and documentation, as well as policies for ensuring fairness, reliability and validity. The IAQ Council is the first certifying body focused on IAQ to comply with these standards.

“Our industry is coming of age,” says Charlie Wiles, American Indoor Air Quality Council executive director. “As we lead it into compliance with national and international standards we will see indoor air quality take its place beside industrial hygiene and environmental engineering as top-tier industries.”
