Adult Auditory Assessment and Management, Vestibular Assessment and Management and Paediatric Audiology have been accredited by the British Academy of Audiology (BAA) as pre-requisites for enrolment onto different clinical competence units that form part of the BAA Higher Training Scheme .

Who can take our CPD units?

Our CPD units are ideally suited for registered audiologists, clinical scientists, hearing therapists and others wishing to further their knowledge of audiology.

They will be particularly beneficial for those who may have trained through alternative training routes, such as BAAT, who wish to advance their knowledge and skills, and gain entry into clinical units within the BAA Higher Training Scheme.

Ideally, candidates will have evidence of higher education study or already be working in the field of audiology.
