New New York Law as of January 2015
Home Inspectors and Mold Assessment Licensing
Persons who conduct home inspections as part of potential real estate transactions must also be licensed as a “Mold Assessor” if their inspections/reports include an assessment of mold conditions in the home or property in question.

Excerpts From Labor Law Article 32:

Definition of “mold assessment”:

Ҥ 930. Definitions. As used in this article:

4. "Mold assessment" means an inspection or assessment of real property that is designed to discover mold, conditions that facilitate mold, indication of conditions that are likely to facilitate mold, or any combination thereof.”

Therefore, Home Inspectors need to be licensed as per:

“§ 931. Licensing requirements. 1. It shall be unlawful for any contractor to engage in mold assessment on a project, or to advertise or hold themselves out as a mold assessment contractor unless such contractor has a valid mold assessment license issued by the commissioner.”

Steps to obtain a “Mold Assessor” license:

Attend a DOL approved Mold Assessor course. Approved training providers can be found on the DOL website.
Pass the course. Full attendance is required.
The Training Provider for the course will issue a “certificate of completion” to the Licensee.
Licensee will then submit the application form, appropriate fee and a copy of the “certificate of completion” to DOL.
DOL will issue the Mold Assessor license, which is valid for two years.
