We have begun the process of creating a program for interested individuals to train as hearing technicians. Training nationals is an important part of developing sustainable hearing health solutions. Hearing technicians will be able to test hearing and work with hearing aids. We want to offer this program at cost for anyone in developing nations that have a shortage of qualified hearing technicians. Audiologists with Global Village Partners would oversee the program and provide further training via video conferencing and, ultimately, face-to-face. The first module is scheduled to be recorded this summer.
