2018 dates available – scroll down to view and register
This course is based on the innovative, flexible and cost-effective earphone option listed in the latest (2014) version of Australian Standard 1269.4: insert earphones + noise reducing earmuffs.
The half-day Insert Earphones Workshop provides students with practical skills in how to safely and effectively fit insert earphones in combination with high-rated earmuffs. This new earphone arrangement allows accurate and Standards-compliant testing in many areas that would normally be far too noisy if using standard headphones.
Course content is drawn from Australian/New Zealand Standard 1269.4 Auditory assessment (best practice document in occupational audiometry), government research and input from university-qualified audiologists with over 20 years clinical and teaching experience.
The course is only available for the skilled graduates of our comprehensive Occupational Audiometry Course. We offer the workshop as a public course as well as in-house to businesses with several staff members to be trained.
As with all our courses, the Insert Earphones Workshop is only presented to small groups. This ensures we provide students with sufficient one-on-one tuition to develop solid practical skills and confidence with equipment and procedures.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS COURSE?
- Mobile audiometry services looking for a cost-effective solution to managing background noise
- Practices aiming to promote their service as Standards-legislation compliant, including the key requirement for low levels of background noise
- Fixed location audiometry practices seeking solutions to manage increasing levels of noise or establish a new off-site service
- Audiometry practices with insert earphones and no personnel with the skills to use them
- Existing testers who want to extend their skills and scope of practice to include the use of insert earphones
