It is advised that all candidates utilizing instrumentation with headphones should be given hearing examinations to ensure natural or corrected hearing acuity exists in at least one ear. This examination should be administered upon initial certification and upon recertification. The examination shall be administered by a licensed professional and a record of the test made available to the assessment body using the following document: https://s34315.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ED160-US-Hearing-Test-Declaration.pdf
Candidates who do not provide a record of passing the hearing test will receive conditional certification under which it becomes the responsibility of their employer to assess the candidate’s hearing acuity and their suitability to perform ultrasound data collection and/or analysis. This condition of certification will be noted on the candidate’s certificate as well as MIBoC’s website list of certified analysts.
