Vision, Hearing, and Recertification Classes

A message from Sheron Fountain, DSHS Regional Coordinator:

Good Afternoon All,

There will be no in-person Vision/Hearing/Recertification Screening trainings conducted by DSHS Regional Coordinators for the remainder of 2020.

Therefore, DSHS is providing basic training virtually, until we can conduct in-person certification. We will provide participants with a Provisional Certification valid through December 31, 2021. These participants will not be required to do the practicum portion of the training at this time. However, they will need to sign up for an in-person recertification class and will have the practicum at that time before their provisional certification expires.

Basic training classes will begin the week of September 1, 2020, and will continue through December. Any participant can register from Region 10, 11, or my Public Health Region 3. There is no fee for the trainings.

Please see the Eventbrite registration links below. 

If you have any further questions, please let me know.
