CPD-Accredited Real-Patient Earwax Removal Training

Our comprehensive 2-day course is specifically designed for healthcare professionals looking to enhance their skillset in earwax removal. It encompasses a detailed exploration of three methods for earwax removal, ensuring a versatile and in-depth understanding. The programme combines rigorous theoretical training with practical field experience, providing a balanced approach to learning. This course is an excellent opportunity for professionals to acquire and refine the essential skills needed for proficient earwax removal.

The course is delivered by two distinguished professionals in the field of ear health. Vaishi Sanjeevan, a leading audiologist, and Donna Newitt, an expert in earwax removal, bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the programme. Their dedication to patient care and extensive expertise in ear health and earwax removal techniques make them exceptional guides for this learning journey.

Absolutely! We understand the importance of nourishment during intensive training sessions. Hence, we provide lunch on both days of the course. This arrangement ensures that participants can focus on their learning experience without the inconvenience of arranging their meals.

The course provides all of the essential equipment needed for training in various earwax removal techniques. However, participants are required to bring their own loupes and an otoscope. For those who do not have these items, we offer the option to purchase them directly from us, ensuring you have everything needed for a comprehensive learning experience.

We understand that financial flexibility can be crucial for many of our participants. To accommodate this, we offer an interest-free monthly payment service. This option allows you to spread the cost of the course over a period, making it more manageable and accessible.

We can provide you with the list of hotels.

Earwax (or ‘cerumen’) is a naturally occurring substance that is produced by the ceruminous and sebaceous glands of the outer ear canal. It protects the ear canal by lubricating, cleaning, and fighting bacteria.

Excess buildup is more common than you might think. In the UK, it is estimated that 2.3 million people per year have problems with earwax. There are many reasons for this, and it can happen at any age (although far likelier for the elderly). Some people simply produce more wax than others, some work in dusty environments or overuse cotton buds, some wear headphones or hearing aids constantly: whatever the reason, it’s an extremely common affliction to have.

2.3 million is a huge potential number of clients – especially when considering that the NHS no longer provides its removal service. That is why Meduc8ion offers a two-day course delivered by Trainer and Audiologist Vaishi Sanjeevan and Earwax Removal Specialist Donna Newitt. Our purpose is to train the requisite proficiency and skillsets to healthcare professionals in the service of removing earwax by all three available methods.

Due to the flexibility of earwax removal – in that it can be completed either at home or in a suitable clinic – there is a great number of options for qualified practitioners. Some of the advantages are as follows:

  • Fantastic Profitability

As a qualified earwax removal specialist, you will be able to command fees upwards of £80 for between 15 and 30 minutes per session.

  • Flexible Working Hours

Whether you choose to work for a couple of hours or you have time to work all day is entirely up to you.

We operate an extensive referral system across the country which allows you to access client referrals continually. This means that you can consistently get access to the work you need.

  • Home or Away Service

With the training we provide, you are able to perform earwax removal service either at your home or at that of your patient’s.

  • CPD Points for Your Portfolio

Thanks to our CPD accreditation, you can now add those all-important points to your ongoing training!

  • Constant Demand

Because built-up earwax is such a common condition, there will always be a ready supply of clients for you to help.

With lockdown restrictions now all but gone, there can be no better time to enrol – so why not book your training course here and broaden your horizons!

Microsuction for earwax removal is the most commonly used technique that a doctor is likely to recommend to patients. The procedure is quite simple: a slender nozzle with a miniature vacuum is gently inserted into the ear so that the excess wax can be siphoned out. The entire process shouldn’t take too long and once the wax is dislodged, you will remove it with either the vacuum itself, a small pair of forceps or a Jobson Horne (see below).

Water irrigation is the method of wax removal most used by primary healthcare facilities – though, in the last couple of years, funding for this is service in GP surgeries is slowly being withdrawn. Based upon traditional ear syringing, water irrigation consists of a jet of water being used to flush wax, debris and foreign bodies out of the ear canal. Unlike the now-superseded water syringing, ear irrigation is far more precise and aims for the wall of the ear canal, reducing any risk associated by applying pressure to the tympanic membrane (eardrum).

Manual earwax removal is the combined use of a Jobson Horne (a specialised tool that is part curette, part cotton holder) and a pair of forceps (a delicate pair of scissor-like tongs). You will be trained on how to deftly and expertly remove built-up earwax from within the test subject’s ear. This method requires a high degree of skill, and it is not recommended that you do this without formal training.
