AAO-HNSF Hearing Testing Course (for staff)

May 5-7, 2023
Providence Park Hospital, Novi Michigan Van Elslander Surgical Innovation Center


The CPOP program is a training program to teach hearing testing to office staff.

This course trains otolaryngology office staff to perform comprehensive audiometry and tympanometry under the supervision of an otolaryngologist.

The 3 phases of training are:  1) self study; 2) hands-on workshop; and, 3) 6 month period of supervised patient testing.  Participants who submit a testing log signed by the supervising otolaryngologist at the end of the 6-month period will be issued a Certificate of Completion by the AAO-HNS.

Important Note: In June 2010, CMS clarified the Medicare policy on billing for audiology services.  Not all services learned in this course are eligible for Medicare reimbursement. Many commercial insurances do reimburse for services provided by OTOtech staff.
