HCPC Approved Course in Hearing Aid Dispensing at Queen Margaret University

The Hearing Aid Aptitude Test has been designed to meet the needs of Audiologists who wish to become eligible to apply for registration with HCPC as a registered hearing aid dispenser (RHAD). The course may be suitable for audiologists working in the National Health Service (NHS) or students graduating from audiology degree courses which do not have HCPC approval. The course consists of an online module, followed by an exam which takes place at Queen Margaret University. The aim of the module is to:

  • Provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to equip them for a career in hearing aid audiology.

  • Develop key transferable skills in general use in employment so that students become competent in both autonomous practice and in team-work.

  • Develop motivation and ability to engage in continuing professional development and life-long learning.

  • On successful completion, this course will offer currently qualified Audiologists the eligibility to apply to HCPC for registration as Hearing Aid Dispensers. The course normally runs twice a year.

    Start Date:
    May, October, March

    Course and exam fee: £350
