|Description:||Hearing aid practitioners (also called hearing instrument specialists) work with adult clients, in businesses that sell hearing aids and assistive listening devices. They test hearing ability, select appropriate hearing aids and/or assistive listening devices for clients to purchase, and provide ongoing counseling and support to clients for their hearing and communication needs.
MacEwan University’s Hearing Aid Practitioner program paved the way for diploma programs of its kind in North America, and is recognized internationally by hearing healthcare organizations as a leader in the education and training of hearing aid practitioners. MacEwan University provides the theoretical and practical knowledge required for dispensing hearing aids and assistive listening devices, as well as the broader knowledge needed for professional success in areas such as aural rehabilitation, interpersonal communication, customer service and small business management.
