Changes to HAD Examination Process

 ​

The examination process for limited licensees in hearing aid dispensing will change during Summer 2013.  The Board will not administer the Written Examination.  The Written Examination will be administered as a computer-based examination by a third-party at a testing site approved by the International Hearing Society.  

The Practical Examination will still be administered by the Board.  The Practical Examination will be offered up to 10 times each calendar year.

Information regarding these changes has been e-mailed to all limited licenses in hearing aid dispensing and all full licensees in hearing aid dispensing and audiology that are eligible to be a supervisor of a limited licensee in hearing aid dispensing.  More information will be posted to the Board's website as it becomes available.
