It’s commonly known that there is a shortage of hearing aid professionals available to fill the extensive amount of open job positions. Once licensed, hearing aid technicians have an extensive amount of choices on where they can practice their skills.
Retail Hearing Aid Sales
If you’ve always wanted to be your own boss, now is your chance! The private sector of hearing aid sales from retail stores is booming. Have the chance to run a successful business and help members of your community. The hearing aid industry is one of the few retail businesses that can boast a 100% customer satisfaction rate. By having happy customers, you as the business owner will be the talk of the town and receive many positive recommendations by current clients to their friends and family members.
Large Medical Hospitals
Patients in the hospital may seek hearing aids from the advice of their doctors and nurses. You’ll be able to work hands on with highly educated doctors to assist a high volume of patients. Hospitals are a great environment for motivated technicians to practice their skills by working with a wide range of client needs. Working in a hospital is an excellent way to further your education because of the wide variety of medical cases you’ll see. Gratification is always a part of your daily routine.
Many of the best ENT doctors have hearing aid technicians on staff to fully meet the needs of their patients. By working in a private practice you’ll get to build a connection with patients and see them improve more with every visit. With a doctor always close by they’ll be an excellent resource to also learn more from. You may even be able to teach the doctor a thing or two about hearing aids as the medical training they receive only touches on the basic elements of hearing aid practices.
Not every technician works their best in one environment. By becoming a licensed hearing aid professional you have the option to practice in different settings; giving you the best chance of success. In addition to success, having these options gives you as a technician an option for work schedules. Different shifts are always available. Your certification offers a choice that many professionals cannot enjoy.
Unlike other career paths, a solid health care system is something each community in the country needs. Qualified health professionals will always be in demand as medical practices advance and we grow as a whole. Hearing aids can be sought out for many reasons by members of your community of any age. Professionals are needed to improve their quality of life so they can enjoy time with family, their jobs as well as every beautiful sound the world has to offer.
Recent statistics estimate that for every one qualified and licensed hearing aid professional on average six positions are available. These positions range from the private sector, to front end retail, large hospitals and small practices. As the baby boomers grow into senior citizenship the need for hearing aids increases. Those in need of hearing aids depending on insurance, their financial situation as well as location may seek out services from different locations. This requires a trained professional to be present in all medical wellness practices across the country.
A hearing aid technician is a respected position within the community. The courses are rigorous and an extensive amount of knowledge on hearing aids and how hearing works is important. General medical professionals are unable to help these patients and don’t want to see their health care hindered by not having qualified staff members available.
With traditional courses the time to become qualified averages four to six years. The need for professionals has been ongoing and The Hearing Aid Academy is the only vocational school in the world that can teach individuals the tools they need in a much shorter period of time.
The medical field always has an extensive need for qualified individuals. Doctors, nurses, technicians and other medical staff are respected within the community and are sometimes even looked at as heroes. Having the ability to positively impact a patient’s life is a wonderful feeling.
