Virtual Vision and Hearing Re-Certification Training
Due to COVID-19, DSHS is temporarily offering a virtual Vision/Hearing Screening Re-certification training course.
This virtual training is only for those who have been previously certified for vision and hearing and their certification is expiring at the end of 2020.  Participants can connect using a computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, Smartphone, Chrome Notebook, etc., as long as there is a camera and a microphone.
Your last certification date will be verified by a VHS Coordinator prior to the class date and you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the class virtually.
If for some reason, we do not have your last certification date on file, you must be able to provide a copy of your vision and hearing certification card with the expiration date. If you do not have proof of prior certification, you will not be allowed to attend the virtual re-certification training.
Each session is limited to a small number of participants.
Participants must login on time.  If you are late you will have to register for another session.
There are currently no BASIC classes available for vision and hearing certification trainings due to COVID-19.
Please contact Tracy Le ( or 346-381-0055 for dates and times of Recertification Trainings.
