  • Recognizing how recent changes in federal hearing conservation regulations influence the conduct of CAOHC-approved OHC courses
  • Preparing instructional materials that incorporate recent scientific and technical advances in hearing conservation for use in training conducted by CDs and OHCs.

Special attention will be paid to adult learning teaching methods and how to conduct both the hearing protection and audiometric practicum sections of an OHC course.

Candidates must be certified audiologists, industrial hygienists, occupational health nurses, speech language and hearing professionals, safety engineers, noise-control engineers, otolaryngologists or occupational medical physicians.
