This training is available to those who use the Defense Occupational and Environmental Health Readiness System-Hearing Conservation (DOEHRS-HC) test software as part of their military or DoD civilian job requirements. Each 3½ day training course is for individuals who have never been certified to perform hearing tests (and other hearing readiness-related tasks) or for those technicians whose certification is about to expire (certification is good for 5 years). Those who received this training within the past five years can attend the Course, provided they are still required to perform hearing tests (and other hearing readiness-related tasks) as part of their military or civilian job responsibilities. Travel location and specific hotel information will be provided after online registration and selection for training.
Online Registration is open for FY18 courses that have seats available. Seating is limited and requests usually exceed availability. Priority placement is given to personnel who will be actively and immediately involved with hearing testing at their duty station. Specific course, travel, lodging and location information will be provided after online registration is completed and selection for the course is approved. This typically occurs within a few days of registering for the course.
