Occupational Hearing Conservationist Curriculum

Slides & Notes for Course Directors

About the "Curriculum Slides & Notes" . . .

Course Directors - In response to your requests, you can now have the know-how and teaching experience of professionals in industrial hygiene, noise control engineering, and acoustics in your own CAOHC courses! The curriculum topics below are often difficult to explain to new OHC's, but the PowerPoint® slides and notes in these curriculum sets provide valuable and efficient tools that you can use directly in your training programs. Each set of "curriculum slides and notes" contains an individual CD-rom with a ready-to-use presentation, speaker notes and directions for displaying animation, speaker notes, and playing embedded sound files.

Note: these curriculum slide sets DO NOT replace the CAOHC requirement for a live speaker.
