Unique skills development opportunity for Hearing Care Assistants

The Vision and Hearing Sciences Department at Anglia Ruskin University has updated their unique short course for NHS Band 2/3 Healthcare Assistants and for Hearing Assistants working in private practice.

The flexible 9-month course approved by the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists starts in September 2016 and is delivered online with an on-campus final assessment. The course is designed to develop the Hearing Care Assistant’s confidence in dealing with patients and their hearing issues, and with colleagues for onward referral.

In addition, under the supervision of an RHAD, they will be able to carry out aftercare services and hearing aid repairs, safely perform otoscopy, take impressions and complete screening audiometry.
