This presentation will inform participants about the mission, organizational structure, and strategic outlook of the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC). Further, the presenter will provide an overview of CAOHC's professional products, services, and certificate programs. Both CAOHC and the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) share a common purpose to prevent hearing impairment from occupational and environmental sources. As such, the presenter will describe current and future combined CAOHC and NHCA efforts to promote awareness of the risk factors leading to hearing loss, educate the public on strategies to prevent them, and influence hearing conservation policy through advocacy.

Learning Objectives:
As a result of this Continuing Education Activity, readers will be able to:
1) Describe the CAOHC organizational strategy to advancing best practices in hearing conservation.
2) Identify products and services available to hearing conservation professionals for improving the quality of their clinical practice.
3) Evaluate CAOHC and NHCA joint initiatives for promoting hearing conservation and hearing loss prevention.
