This two-year diploma program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills to practice evidence-informed hearing healthcare and to function as an integral member of the interprofessional health care team. Graduates of the program will have demonstrated the necessary patient-focused skills to manage the needs of the hard of hearing. The program provides a rich learning environment that utilizes classroom education, laboratory simulation, various interprofessional exercises, and clinical exposure to hone competency. The course work is designed to ensure the student is capable to assess hearing and provide hearing patients with appropriate rehabilitation options - in particular, the selection and fitting of today's technologically-advanced hearing aids. Additionally, the course work will prepare the student to manage minor hearing aid and ear mold repairs and modifications. It will prepare students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and critical thinking ability for proficiency within a hearing healthcare environment. After successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to write national/provincial examinations and to complete 1000 hours of supervised internship through the Association of Hearing Instrument Practitioners (AHIP).

Graduate Opportunities

The scope of practice for the Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) is confined to the adult population, whose members present with no medical reason to contra-indicate the use of hearing aids. The HIS typically finds employment in private practice or in the hearing-aid manufacturing sector.

On average, 89% of graduates from the last three years (2015 to 2017) found employment within six months of graduation.
