Bond of Trust
Although the Academy is a state licensed and approved career school, it does not depend upon State or Federal funding and is a for-profit career school. That means simply that the Academy depends upon your tuition installments for its ability to provide educational and support services, including our outreach program to employers.
Qualified students enter into a personal bond of trust with the Academy: the Academy pledges to you that it will never limit your rate of progress in your training, or access to any of the educational support, activities and services. In return you pledge to make your low, monthly installments promptly. It is a personal bond of trust that enables you to complete your training as quickly as possible graduate, schedule and take your state certification examination, find your high-paying career opportunity and be well onto your career path before you have paid your tuition in full. That’s what we mean by trust.
Students can graduate in as little as 3 to 6 months. Yes, your monthly responsibility will remain until your tuition is paid in full, but together our bond of trust will have changed your future, provided a handsome income and ease the tuition burden along the way. We will be there for you every step of the way on that path.
Additional Costs, not in the tuition fee
Text books and supplies for hands-on practice in developing skills necessary for producing earmolds for use with hearing instruments are not included in the tuition. Students can successfully begin the training relying upon provided materials available from the Academy for free download, and the video lectures, but the required text books are necessary references linked to the study plan. The supplies are associated with latter chapters in the training, but should be purchased to keep from delaying your training progress. They can be purchased through the Academy. These costs are not included in your tuition and are Non-Refundable.
When you are learning fitting and testing skills, and when preparing for your state licensing examination, you will want to either buy or rent a calibrated audiometer for practice and for your actual use in your state examination. The cost and availability vary with location and brand; however, rental is generally low and we provide a national third-party rental source when the time comes. Since employers normally provide necessary on-the-job equipment, we suggest the low cost rental option until you know the direction your career is going to take.
Lastly, when you are ready to sit for your state licensure examination, your state will have fees associated with the examinations. The states vary in their approach to the fees and charges, ranging from a few hundred dollars, to over a thousand dollars. Click Here to learn more about the “State License Exams”.
Your enrollment decision and the resulting financial responsibility can be considered a personal investment in your future and a promise of lifetime benefits; however, we always recommend that you sit with your family and discuss your future goals, how your dedication to study may impact their lives and activities for a while, and how your installment responsibility may affect your family. There may be some sacrifices involved. If so, everyone should be on board with your plan for the future and its goals. Please call us if you have concerns and wish to discuss your future.
