Latest courses prove very popular

We have incorporated instrumentation into our extremely successful basic irrigation Study Day for nurses and have refined the very popular Microsuction Course into an intensive one-day course in response to demand. Microsuction is also now taught as part of the week-long Diploma Course and also forms the core of a new course - Microsuction for Healthcare Assistants & Other Support Workers.

Infections and treatments are now covered intensively and concisely in a separate half-day course.

All courses have been extremely well received and are proving to be very popular - you will find a list of training dates between now and July on both the Homepage and the Training page.

We - and our trainers throughout the UK - still provide the basic Irrigation Study Day which all nurses who provide ear care should complete.


We are in the process of developing a course on mould taking - for audiological technicians and others who take hearing aid moulds.  Please ring for details.


Would you like to train for us?

We are currently looking for a new trainer or trainers in Scotland and Cumbria.  If you have completed our Diploma Course and are interested in providing ear care training in your area, please get in touch.
