This course is CPD accredited and is currently awaiting confirmation for the amount of CPD points that individuals will receive for completing the course successfully. All individuals who attend the course prior to confirmation will still receive the CPD points once confirmed.
During the course your trainer will continuously analyse your performance and competency of performing earwax removal procedures, the practical earwax removal part of the program will feature constant supervision by the trainers, upon demonstrating mandatory standard competency you will receive an official Meduc8ion certificate to confirm your ability to safely conduct irrigation and microsuction earwax removals.
If for whatever reason you do not demonstrate mandatory standard competency in earwax removal we are able to offer additional earwax removal practice days, however you will not receive a certification until the trainer is satisfied that you can safely perform the procedures . Please contact the course organiser Emma Grogan at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further.
