    After your successful completion of this course a personalized Ears Made Easy certificate acknowledging your 6 learning hours will become available to download/print - in the end section

  • Will I learn how to do ear wax removal during this course?

    No. This foundation course is designed around the skill of otoscopy and providing ear care in primary health and public settings. Although we will cover the different types of wax and the removal methods in use, it does not teach the 'how-to' of wax removal

  • Do I need an otoscope to do this course?

    No you won't. If you could borrow one that might be an advantage so you can hold it during some of the teaching and begin your practice in our EME Technique. You have access to the course resources for a month - you can look again when you have one! We will provide information on otoscope choices, and good prices on Welch Allyn models, if you are going to purchase one.
