Webinar: A Hybrid Approach to Audiometric Technician Training: A Fusion of Traditional and Virtual Learning

Part of the Collaborative Platform: A Series in Hearing Conservation developed as a collaboration between CAOHC and NHCA

The National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) has coordinated with the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) to host another NHCA/CAOHC webinar series for 2020/2021. Hearing conservation disciplines are presented by various industry experts in this series of live and recorded sessions. Subject matters range from beginning to intermediate topics centered around best practice in hearing care and sound management.

The first webinar in this series is titled, "A Hybrid Approach to Audiometric Technician Training: A Fusion of Traditional and Virtual Learning."  

About the Webinar: Alternative delivery models for teaching Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) hearing technician certification courses have become a reality.  To date, only a few Course Directors (CDs) have ventured into this uncharted territory.  This presentation offers a suggested roadmap for developing and delivering virtual courses and reviews the benefits and challenges of a hybrid model, including lessons learned.  While of benefit to anyone considering virtual synchronous learning, the intended audience are current CDs of any experience level and those who may be considering becoming a CD.
