Hearing Aid Champion training

Hearing Aid Champion training is aimed at staff working in residential care, home care, care at home, sheltered or very sheltered housing to learn basic hearing aid maintenance.

It is an hour long, informal and practical training, delivered by North East Sensory Services (NESS) volunteers with support from Audiology.  The NESS volunteers are usually hearing aid users themselves and have been trained by Audiology to run NESS’s Hear2Help service, which provides basic hearing aid maintenance to hearing aid wearers at NESS’s Resource Centre on John Street.                BTE Hearing Aid image

NESS volunteer trainers are available on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month in the morning to come to you to train a small group of your staff in basic hearing aid maintenance of hearing aids with moulds. There is some flexibility if this time isn’t suitable.  The training will cover basic trouble-shooting, cleaning, re-tubing and changing batteries in mould hearing aids.
