I have been searching online for training on being a Hearing Instrument Specialist- The only one I’m able to find is the Hearing Aid Academy. I watched their training video and I’m feeling hesitant because it seems really sales pitch-y. But the time it takes to obtain your training (3-6 months online) is extremely appealing as well as the low costs of the courses. I can’t find any reviews from previous students either. I feel like I’ve searched all over the internet and am coming up with dead ends. Can anyone recommend an online training course for HIS or maybe validate Hearing Aid Academy for me?
As an aside- I do not currently work for any Hearing Aid companies (I am a grocery store cashier) but I do wear hearing aids myself. It has never occurred to me before to seek out this line of work until recently. Having worn many over-the-ear brands and experienced different kinds of molds, I feel like I’d be uniquely qualified to provide first hand experience and recommendations, plus I can relate to clients (especially the 40 and under clients).
Any words of advice would be appreciated!
