Hello, I looked on the link you enclosed (thank you), I kinda got the impression that you must be an actual Doctor to fit and dispense (sell) hearing aids. I want to fill the hearing aid prescription that an Audiologist (?) has prescribed. Like an Optician fills the rx that an Optometrist prescribes for eyeglasses and contacts. Thank You
I appreciate your patience with me, as I really don't know the protocol as far as this subject goes. Can you give me information on where/how to get the training to fit?
Not hearing, I am an Optician for 26 years. I live in Pa. Pa is a non-licensed state as far as Opticianry. I moved here 10 years ago from a "licensed state" unaware that Pa did not require a license to practice Opticianry. So... I would like to ad hearing aids to my business, for two reasons... 1). Obviously the extra income, and 2). There are very very few affordable avenues for those in need of hearing aids, in my area.
I was hoping that there would be a course or something in that nature that I could learn and get certified, if need be.
I understand if I take courses, etc., and am not really capable of fitting hearing aids properly, it would not benefit patients, or myself. I would like to really learn this field.
Any assistance you can give me on who to contact to get started, I would so appreciate.
Thanks for your time!
