AAOHN Approved Certification by the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC)

To the Officers of the South Carolina and Georgia Chapters of AAOHN,


I want to make you aware of a local training opportunity that may be of benefit to your members who are involved in hearing conservation programs and are looking for continuing education opportunities. Certification by the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) provides credibility for corporate and clinic programs and is an important credential for nurses, physicians, medical assistants, medical technologists, audiology assistants, and other staff who perform audiometric monitoring in the context of regulatory-based hearing conservation programs as well as for industrial hygienists and safety professionals who are involved in other aspects of the program. Many of your association members may already be CAOHC certified.


Beth Cooper Acoustics, an acoustical consulting and training services firm, is offering CAOHC-approved 20-hour certification and 8-hour recertification courses in your local area in late January and again in the summer of 2017. The American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, Inc. has approved these courses for Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) contact hours. Nurses and other occupational medicine/health and safety professionals may earn continuing education contact hours by attending one of these courses.


The 20-hour certification course will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Suites Charleston Airport on January 30 – February 1, 2017, and the 8-hour recertification course will be held at the same location on February 2, 2017. Please visit my website at to learn more about the unique features of these courses and to register online.


I am also pleased to offer private courses for organizations that wish to provide training for multiple staff members. A custom on-site course may be more convenient and less expensive for employers with multiple staff members who require CAOHC certification or recertification or that wish to provide hearing conservation education for their entire hearing conservation program team. Feel free to contact me for more information or to request a quote for a custom CAOHC-approved training course at a location of your choice. 


I would very much appreciate it if you would share the news of this continuing education opportunity with your membership.
