Who Should Attend
This course is designed specifically for people who are responsible for or who run audiometric testing programmes in industry. Organisations require such programmes to be run by a competent person.
Aims and Objectives
This course is designed to give the delegates an in-depth working knowledge of audiometric testing programmes through practical learning. The high content of hands-on experience with both manual and automatic audiometers leaves attendees ready-to-go.
The course focuses heavily on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Guidelines Note MS26.

The course consists of 2 modules, which are structured in the following way.
Module 1 Three Day Course
Day 1 of the course covers subjects from basic acoustics through to the principles of monitoring audiometry. Day 2 is dedicated to techniques of audiometry and is very hands-on. Day 3 looks at issues related to Hearing Conservation Programmes (HCP) and Personal Protection.
