BECOME BOARD CERTIFIED AFTER GRADUATION
Becoming Board Certified in Audiology® is the first step toward taking your practice to a higher professional level. Our certified audiologists have successfully completed a course of graduate study in audiology from a regionally accredited university and have earned a doctoral degree in audiology.
In addition, our certificants have completed a minimum of 2,000 hours of mentored professional practice. AuD student externship/internship hours may be used to meet the 2,000-hour eligibility requirement. Mentors must be state licensed Audiologists - a mentor does not need to hold an ABA Credential or ASHA CCC-A.
In order to ensure that our certificants are up-to-date on the latest technologies and findings in audiology, we require them to engage in continuous learning and to recertify every three years. Applicants for renewal must demonstrate that they have earned 60 hours of approved continuing education within that three-year period.
