Tinnitus Care Provider Certificate Program



The Tinnitus Care Provider Certificate will be granted to licensed hearing health professionals with at least 2 years of post-licensure clinical experience who have completed the Tinnitus Care Provider two-day workshop and passed the separate assessment. Candidates must attempt the assessment within 30 days of the workshop, and should use the time between the workshop and assessment to study the workshop materials and the resources given at registration.
