what education do i need to become a hearing aid specialist ?

I've had hearing aids of my own but after a while, they start to hurt our ears and would like to create a hearing aid that's custom for every different person for an affordable price that doesn't break the bank. I understand ur ears are very important in life and hearing is one of the most important things you use in your everyday life.

Thank you comment icon I don't have any advice to contribute, but I wanted to jump in and say that this is an amazing goal to have! I look forward to what you create in the future Gurpreet Lally, Admin

Hello Joshua,

In order to become a Hearing Aid Specialist, you will need to obtain a degree in audiology or audiology technology. Additionally, it is typically required to complete an internship or apprenticeship with an experienced hearing aid specialist or an audiologist. As well, you may want to consider attaining certifications in hearing aid dispensing to demonstrate your expertise in the field. Furthermore, you should complete continuing education to stay up to date on the latest advancements in hearing aids and assistive listening technologies.
you will need to obtain a degree or certification in audiology. This typically involves completing a bachelor's degree, such as a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders, with a concentration on audiology. You may also need to complete a clinical externship and/or obtain a license or certification in audiology. Alternatively, you could receive a master's degree in audiology (M.S. in Audiology). This program would provide you with specialized knowledge that would prepare you to work with a variety of clients and in different areas, like manufacturing and dispensing hearing aids.

Hello!

Look into the Audiology field. The major for this field would most likely be Communication Sciences and Disorders. Most Audiologists work with hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other hearing-assisting devices. With a major in Communication Sciences and Disorders and on the career path of Audiology, you could most definitely get into the manufacturing, creating, inventing, etc. of hearing aids/hearing devices! This is also an on-the-rise career path - our country needs more Audiologists!

Good luck to you! I wish for you to reach your dreams and goals successfully!
