I have hearing loss, how can you help me?

Students with hearing loss can have an interpreter attend the course with you to interpret the exam, but not allowed to lead the participant to “give” the correct answer. Any breach in protocol and the interpreter will be relieved. The interpreter does not write the exam for themselves. Signing, for the deaf: Signers are allowed to act as the interpreter and sign for the participant following the Instructors information. Oral exams by an instructor or FoodSafe Manager are offered at any time. You should consider enrolling in our online course.

In addition, exams can be conducted using Google Meet, which has a reasonable voice to text captioning. The video component can also be used for lip reading.
