These tests ensure that police officers have adequate hearing abilities in order to perform their roles and duties effectively.

Planes can generate significant noise levels, which may impact those working in aviation. The aviation (CASA) hearing assessment helps to ensure pilots, aircrew, and other aviation personnel maintain the necessary hearing abilities to safely perform their duties.

It’s generally recommended to have your hearing checked at age 65, though many people under 65 also have their hearing tested as part of their overall health assessments.

You can take our online hearing test as a screener tool, which aims to determine whether you have any hearing loss. However, the most accurate way to test your hearing is to do so in a sound-treated environment with a hearing professional.

Hearing tests assess a person’s hearing abilities by measuring their sensitivity to sound volume and pitch. The results are depicted on an audiogram, which is a graphical representation that helps identify the extent and underlying causes of any hearing difficulties. These tests commonly involve pure tone audiometry and speech discrimination tests.
