ABA Preparing First Preceptor Training Program to Validate Audiologists Who Supervise Students in Clinical Settings
Audiologists who successfully complete the ABA’s Preceptor Training Program will gain an understanding of their critical role as educators and will be competent to lead students through valuable clinical learning experiences.
Welcome to the American Board of Audiology® (ABA)
We work closely with expert practitioners to create high-level professional standards to further the field of audiology. We encourage audiologists to adhere to – and exceed – these standards to ensure that their patients receive the best care available. We also encourage high levels of ethics and continual learning so that audiologists understand and can implement the latest advances in audiology for the benefit of the patients who rely on them for care.
We offer three types of voluntary certification programs that showcase an audiologist’s expertise and experience in the field. Audiologists who hold the Board Certified in Audiology®, the Pediatric Audiology Specialty Certification (PASC®) and/or the Cochlear Implant Specialty Certification (CISC®) credentials have passed a rigorous exam testing their knowledge and skill sets, hold master’s and doctoral degrees in the field and have numerous years of experience. These combine to make them the best practitioners a patient could seek for care.
Our specialty certifications were created by and are administered by ABA certified audiologists, who help us maintain the highest levels of understanding of the needs of today’s audiologist. Join our community today.
