Training

In addition to clinical work, research and writing articles, we also teach ear care to nurses, audiologists, healthcare assistants and other health professionals. Some of the training takes place here in Rotherham, but we do take our training ‘on the road’, where appropriate. If you would like a course brought to you, please contact us. For any enquiries about training please telephone 01709 423140

Some of our training, particularly our Study Days and half day up-date are provided throughout the UK by our network of licensed trainers. Some of them also present the Healthcare Assistants Course. We have 24 trainers in 15 locations throughout England and Wales. Click here for a list of trainers.


Coming soon....

We are launching the new course - Microsuction for Healthcare Assistants & Assistant Practitioners in October

It's a 2 day course - 2nd & 3rd October 2017 at a cost of £525 for both HCA & Mentor

It has the same structure as the basic HCA Course - HCAs attend both days, Mentors just the first

Many Practices who would prefer their staff not to irrigate are looking at suction as an alternative.  Nurses and Audiologists can already access our Microsuction Study Day and this is a Microsuction Course specifically for support staff.

We have already trialled this course and these are a few of the many comments we received:
