Hearing Aid Dispensers provide minimal testing for the sole purpose of supplying hearing aids to individuals with hearing loss. Hearing Aid Dispensers are trained in the interpretation of hearing assessment instrumentation, hearing aid electronics, specifications, analysis, modifications and programming.
All new hearing aid dispensing trainees must train for two years under the supervision of a licensed hearing aid dispenser. After training, they are allowed to sit for the National Competency Examination to become Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences.
The State evaluations for licensure include both written and practical examinations to assess competency. All states in the US license Hearing Aid Dispensers and a High School Degree is the only educational criteria. It should be noted that Hearing Aid Dispenser is not an Audiologist who has a doctorate and is able to diagnose hearing loss and to perform various tests of hearing, balance and tinnitus that hearing aid dispensers cannot do.
