Hearing Aid Dispenser is a highly
demanding career in the coming years.
Historically, our longevity has been
expanding rapidly since 1950. In addition,
baby boomers, who were born in 1945 to
1965, are now aged at 50 or more, and their
numbers are more than 70 million. As more
people are getting older, their listening
abilities are either decreasing or getting
damaged by aging, internal, or external
reasons. As more people need professional
help for their hearing problems, more
hearing related professionals are needed
now and in the future. Many people have
hearing related problems, but the numbers
of dispensers in the US are actually
decreasing because recruitment is not
effectively done by various government
agencies. For example, the number of new

Hearing Aid Dispensers in California is less
than 70 compared to 4,300 new lawyers in
2010. Hearing aid dispensing is a great
medical related business in terms of income
and business nature. Many positive aspects
can be summarized such as no labor
intensive work, flexible working hours, very
minimal inventory or no inventory needed,
advanced technology intensive business,
career for all ages, and high profit margin
expected. Not many people have
knowledge about the nature of this
business, but if you pay attention to this,
you will find very attractive aspects as your
long-term career. First of all, this career is a
highly recognized career in society. It is an
absolutely professional career. All
government agencies acknowledge this
career as a professional career and many
people consider a HAD as an ear doctor.
Secondly, this will be a career for all ages.
In many different medical sectors, age
sometimes acts as a significant factor.
However, in this area, age will be the
smallest factor because the majority of your
clients are elderly. So, age has small effect
in hearing aids dispensing. If you are a
household wife, health related employee,
nurse, early retiree, young student,
mid-aged office worker, man or woman; you

can become a dispenser if you pass the
written and practical exam. Thirdly, this can
be a long-term career. Hearing loss is not
just a physical symptom or disorder; rather,
it significantly affects an individualÂ’s
psychology. Many people who have hearing
loss tend to express low self-esteem,
rejection, avoid meeting new people, they
simply withdraw from others. They live with
a psychological burden from their hearing
loss. Thus, the trust created between clients
and dispenser can be a core element in
your dispensing activities. If you care
enough for your clients, they tend to be your
lifetime customers. It will eventually lead to
your long-term career. Lastly, this career
generates a stable income. All medical and
health related jobs are very secure in
income. The average income of a dispenser
in the US is about 70K, and independent
private dispensers as store owners make
more than 100K. Before you prepare
anything for the examination, I strongly
recommend you to call or visit the website
of the Hearing Aid Dispenser bureau or any
appropriate department in your state to
make sure what kinds of requirement you
need to fulfill. Some states require you to
have a certain training period under the
supervision of an ENT doctor, Audiologist,

or Hearing Aid Dispenser in a form of
sponsor. However, some states do not
require any training period such as Texas
and California. Each state has different
requirements. Also, many states accept the
California license as a legitimate license to
do any practice in that state, so you need to
check that option, too. If you have a difficult
time obtaining any sponsorship, this can be
another option. The minimum educational
qualification for the test being the dispenser
is only a high school diploma or equivalent
degree. After you finish the basic research
for the requirement, you will need to
download written exam application. Fill out
all the required fields, finalize the
procedure, and send it to the dept. with all
fees. The approval process may take 4 to 6
weeks depending on the state. In the mean
time, you need to prepare and study for the
written exam. For preparation of the written
exam, you may do the following: 1. Find a
medium level Audiology book in the internet
or book store. 2. Find any written and
practical exam material in the internet or
book store. 3. Visit PSI website for any
recommendation of the book with the
related subjects. You may spend 2 to 3
months to get ready for the first written
exam. If you pass the exam, you will need

to prepare for the practical exam. The
practical exam in most states is composed
of 3 parts, Audiometric testing, Ear
impression, and Post-fitting care. There are
more detailed sub-categories. Give at least
3 months to get used to the practical
examination procedure. For preparation of
the practical examination, you may do
following: 1. Call or visit a local Hearing Aid
Dispenser office to ask for minimal training.
You never know, sometimes a good person
may help you. 2. Call reputed hearing aid
manufacturers and find if they offer any
practical exam training. 3. Buy a DVD made
for the practical examination in the internet.
As soon as you pass the examination, you
can work any in Audiologist office, private
office, franchiser, or Costco hearing aid
center. Hearing Aid Dispenser will be your
great career. We wish you pass the exam.
