This Train the Trainer course is designed for teachers, Extension staff, 4H and FFA leaders and others who work with young adults. The young ag producer works in an environment with noise hazards and plays in an environment with noise hazards. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is common (and preventable) but unfortunately, use of hearing protection among youth is not.
By the end of the Train the Trainer session, participants/educators will be able to:
- Understand the pathophysiology of hearing loss
- Recognize the importance of preventing noise induced hearing loss
- Use the Invest in Your Health training materials and classroom activities to teach hearing loss prevention
