This qualification reflects the role of audiometrists who conduct hearing assessments to identify hearing impairment and take appropriate action based on the test results. They may refer clients for further audiological or medical assessment, and be involved in care management and education programs. At this level, audiometrists also prescribe and dispense hearing aids and/or other listening devices to assist in hearing rehabilitation. Audiometrists may work in medical or industrial contexts or as independent practitioners.
No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
