I am pleased to offer courses leading to certification and recertification as an occupational hearing conservationist (COHC) by the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC). My courses welcome nurses, industrial hygienists, occupational physicians, safety professionals, and clinic personnel such as medical assistants.
I teach small groups of certification and recertification students in separate courses, tailoring the material and approach to meet the needs of each group. My courses include a combination of lecture, demonstration, and practicum sessions as well as plenty of time for discussion, exercises, and questions. I use the CAOHC Hearing Conservation Manual as the basis of my curriculum to help best prepare students to successfully pass the CAOHC standardized certification and recertification exams, and each student receives a copy of the Manual (a $90 value) in advance of the course. This especially helps recertification students to review material from the certification course that is included in the CAOHC standardized test domains.
I am honored to have as my co-instructor for the certification courses Richard W. Danielson, PhD, Board Certified in Audiology, CPS/A, a retired military audiologist and Manager of Audiology and Hearing Conservation at NASA Johnson Space Center. Dr. Danielson and I are long-time colleagues in our work as NASA hearing conservation program managers. Both of us have been actively involved in the hearing conservation community throughout our careers and have served in leadership positions on CAOHC and the National Hearing Conservation Association. Dr. Danielson is a CAOHC-certified Course Director and Professional Supervisor and has authored several chapters of the CAOHC Hearing Conservation Manual. Together, with our extensive hands-on experience with unique and extreme noise exposure challenges as well as our collaborative experience as a teaching team, we infuse the course with real-life perspectives, strategies, and practical resources for our students to apply in their own work.
Open-enrollment courses are offered year-round, in a variety of cities across the US. Private on-site courses are also available on request for clients with group training needs.
