Results: The mean epidemiology and causes of hearing loss score of post training was statistically significant higher than that pre-training by 0.48 scores (95% CI = 0.19 to 0.76). Moreover, the overall knowledge score of post training was significantly higher than that pre-training by 0.99 scores (95% CI = 0.26 to 1.72). Nevertheless, the overall percentage score of knowledge for all participants was 19.0% of the participants which was categorized as having good knowledge level.
