How to Re-certify as a Course Director

Course Director (CD) certification is valid for 5 years. To recertify, CDs need to participate in a semiannual Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation CD Workshop.

If you can't attend a workshop during the year in which certification expires, you can have 1 more year to complete the course. However, in that case, you may teach courses for only the first 6 months of that year.

To re-certify, follow these 2 steps:

  1. Submit the CD recertification application and proof of:
    • Current license or registration issued by applicant state licensing board and verification of your certification or your membership in (1) of the following organizations:
      • Credential from the American Board of Audiology, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, American Board of Industrial Hygiene or Board of Certified Safety Professionals
      • Membership in the American Industrial Hygiene Association or American Society of Safety Engineers
  2. Complete and submit the CD Workshop registration form and the recertification fee, which includes both the application fee and the cost of the workshop
