For the hearing impaired:

If you have a hearing impairment, you may take the in-person course as the video component of the training includes closed captions. In addition, you can follow along with the instructor training by reading the training manual provided. If you plan to take an in-person course, please follow up with Northeastern New York Safety & Health Council by calling (518) 438-2365. Inform them of your intention to take a course and provide the course date and location so they can ensure that the instructor activated the closed caption feature on the video training.
