The American Conference of Audioprosthology (ACA) program provides applicable information related to hearing instrument dispensing. Upon successful completion of the course, students are able to assess the type and magnitude of hearing impairment; analyze and select hearing aids with appropriate electroacoustic propreties; and manage the professional, technical and business aspects necessary in the field.
The ACA program is a baccalaureate level course specifically designed for hearing instrument dispensers with two or more years of experience.
Professionals with many years in this field have advanced their competency level through this program and feel empowered with the additional expertise they have acquired.
Are you working toward a degree? ACA's 15 semester hours of credit toward a baccalaureate degree category can be applied to a variety of undergraduate programs.
The ACA curriculum is periodically reviewed by the American Council on Education (ACE). The course covers subjects such as anatomy and physiology of the auditory system, hearing disorders, hearing measurement, physical and psychoacoustics, and basic business practices. ACA maintains a faculty of instructors who are experts in their respective fields.
