To register for practitioner training, click on the location on the training schedule, on the right sidebar.
The DPTC content is the same as the PTC with the exception of the hands-on practice.
The Advanced Practitioner Training Courses prepare one to use all iLs components, including creating original, individualized programs on the iLs Pro system. Both Pro and Focus Series systems can be customized for client needs. The Pro has higher bone conduction output, higher frequency filtration and customizable right/left ear training.
The Advanced Level I training will cover the Pro Amplifier and its increased bone conduction and R/L lateralization, the Interactive Language Program, iLs program structure and how to combine and customize the Focus Programs. You will learn to create customized programs specifically aimed at addressing your clients’ challenging needs. You will also learn to pace the speed of the program based on your client, adjust programs when regression/reorganization occur and accommodate for scheduling difficulties.
The Advanced Level II training will cover the Pro music library from which you will create your own programs. These individualized programs are used in supervised settings to jumpstart a home program, accelerate a program, during intensives and with more complex cases.

- Customize programs to achieve therapeutic objectives.
