hearing aid licensing waiver

By virtue of their advanced training and clinical doctoral degree, it is completely reasonable that audiologists should not have to take yet another test to prove their competency in hearing aid dispensing.  In California, we no longer are required to have a second, hearing aid dispensing license, due to the comprehensive training that audiologists receive in their doctoral programs.
