This is a one year (two semester) online course, with Campus-based assessments, at level four that provides a grounding in basic hearing care customer services.
The course is ideal for Hearing or Optical Assistants and Practice Receptionists who want to be more useful in their practice. You’ll be able to talk more confidently to patients about hearing issues and carry out aftercare services and hearing aid repairs under the supervision of an HAD.
The course is approved by the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists and enables direct access to the Foundation Degree, which leads to registration as a Hearing Aid Dispenser with the HCPC.
