Hearing aid technicians choose apparatuses and arrange settings on hearing aids. They meet with patients, assess their needs, establish their audiometric profile and help them adapt to their new hearing aid. They take auricular impressions and repair hearing aids. As part of their duties, they may have to perform administrative management tasks in an audioprosthetist office. A job as a hearing aid technician requires empathy, dexterity, discretion and listening skills. This job also requires good hearing, communication skills and the ability to form helping relationships.
