Everything you need to know about Audiology Assistant training

As the popularity and the success of audiology assistants in clinics and private practices increases, so does the need for well thought out training. Thanks to the support of ADA and our practice development partners, Audiology Academy has been very successful in helping many practices do just that. We have upgraded the Audiology Assistant Training program to include improved functionality for the Supervisor, giving them easy access to results like tests, surveys and time spent on each training module. In addition, our Best Practice Protocols will help to integrate the assistant into any practice with ease. Our Training Tracker helps the Supervisor keep a close eye on what the Assistant is working on in the lab and what processes have been practiced and mastered. Our writable Checklists help you build a communication bridge between the audiologist and the assistant so no task, big or small gets overlooked. All of this is included for you in one complete training package. We've done the preparation for you. All you need to do is sign up! 

The FIRST questions we always get is, "What is the difference between the courses you offer?"

We have created a course comparison chart that gives a quick visual of what is different. That can be found here... Course Comparison Chart

Another common question we get is, "What makes us different from the other assistant training programs?"

Well, a lot! We don't have anything negative to say about the other courses. They are good courses but we just offer a few more helpful tools that really do make a difference.

Our Supervisors Guide - This guide is used to assist the supervising Audiologist to guide the training assistant in weekly courses that are taken online and completed in-practice. This guide is also helpful when filling out state requirements for training for your assistant.

Best Practice Protocols - These protocols are designed to help a practice integrate an Audiology Assistant successfully into their practice. Protocols include:

Checklist and Tracking worksheets - These checklists and tracking worksheets are designed to help keep track of the training so the supervising audiologist knows where more focus for the assistant needs to be. Checklists are to help make sure the assistant is not missing any steps while training. Many of these checklists can continue to be used after training is complete to help with communication between the assistant and the audiologist.

*Certificate of Completion - Our competitors also offer a certificate so we just wanted to list it on here so others know what to expect. Some states accept this training as one of the accepted means for the supervising audiologist to ensure that the assistant is trained appropriately.
This program is designed for training and information purposes only. The audiologist is responsible for the registration or acquiring the state licensure or certification for audiology assistants. The audiologist is responsible to ensure that the assistant and training meet the necessary license regulations to work as an audiology assistant in the state where the clinic resides.
