Audiometry should only be undertaken by those whose job description specifically includes it, and where an employer has identified who is liable in the event of any claim for accident or injury etc.

This 2-day training course by TJ Audiology Training prepares delegates to carry out air conduction and bone conduction audiometry according to BSA procedure. It does not prepare delegates to carry out the masking procedure, and where masking is required, there must be local protocols in place for referral to a suitably qualified audiological professional. Otoscopy shall be carried out by the delegate to decide whether contraindications exist, and/or if there is any doubt about whether the procedure should continue. In such cases referral must be made to a suitably qualified audiological or medical professional.
