What are my activities in this job?
Thanks to highly sensitive electronics and sophisticated measuring methods, you succeed in compensating for damage or weaknesses in the sensitive sensory organ ear. You adjust hearing systems electro-acoustically and individually, because the degree of hearing loss and the needs of your customers are very different. To ensure that you hit the right note for everyone, you determine the hearing ability with the help of the most modern measuring technology. The highest level of craftsmanship and precision is also required when making earmoulds. You make each one to fit exactly, because the shape and the exact fit are crucial. You are familiar with computer programmes for fine-tuning hearing systems.
Your craftsmanship and technical perfection will lead you to success as a trained hearing care professional. Interpersonal contact is also an important aspect of your job. In personal consultations, you build trust with your customers by addressing their problems, showing empathy and providing them with competent advice. You need both technical and human sensitivity.
