HLT57415 – Diploma in Audiometry

HLT57415 – Diploma in Audiometry

 

This qualification reflects the role of audiometrists who conduct hearing assessments to identify hearing impairment and take appropriate action based on the test results. They may refer clients for further audiological or medical assessment, and be involved in care management and education programs. At this level, audiometrists also prescribe and dispense hearing aids and/or other non-implantable devices to assist in hearing rehabilitation. Audiometrists may work in medical, industrial, or retail contexts as independent practitioners.

 

NB: No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
