Au.D. professionals should be exempt from examination

Audiologists who have received the Au.D. earned their credentials by verifying that they already have the knowledge required for all duties covered under their profession, including dispensing of hearing aids.  They do not need to take another exam, nor incur any further costs nor time involved with such exam, to prove their abilities in this area.  Please pass legislation to make a step toward common sense in this area.
