There are two pathways into the profession: on-the-job training along with the IHS Distance Learning Course, or an academic degree in hearing instrument fitting and dispensing, offered at a few colleges in the US and Canada.
Students who are using the Distance Learning Course should have by now received several email communications from the IHS Professional Development team about the course and your journey to become a hearing aid specialist.
There are many preparatory tools and options available. Therefore, we’ve put together a Success Checklist (below). Each step is critical to your attainment of the core knowledge and skills necessary to become licensed and fully equipped to practice as a hearing aid specialist.
IHS is your partner and we’re here to support you. Keep a look out for more tips and guides on working in the profession.
