The Hearing Conservation Student Study Guide© contains instructional support information for the domains and tasks found in the Occupational Hearing Conservationist (OHC) Standardized Exam Blueprint. The Student Study Guide© was designed to be used by Course Directors (CDs) to help supplement their OHC course instruction and by OHCs to help them review for the Standardized Certification and Recertification exam.
The Student Study Guide© was created by CAOHC’s OHC Committee, a working group of active and highly experienced CDs. Although the working group did not have access to any of the OHC standardized exam content, they did review the Job Task Analysis (JTA) and exam blueprint to provide both the CD and the and the aspiring OHC, a measure of guidance and focus in preparation for the standardized exam.
The Student Study Guide© is not presented in an exact sequence to the exam blueprint however, it does contain all of the domains and associated tasks. The CD should not feel constrained from supplementing, rearranging, or emphasizing his or her lecture material with the information found in this guide.
