Did you know that Preceptors are responsible for more than one-fourth of an audiology student's educational experience? This is an incredible responsibility.

A well-trained preceptor is essential to helping students become practice-ready clinicians, prepared with the technical and professional skills they'll need to be successful; the CH-AP Training Program is designed to do that for current and future audiologists.

Those who earn the CH-AP certificate help facilitate a student's transition from novice clinician to competent, independent professional.

Successful completion of four modules is required to earn the CH-AP certificate. Registrants are notified by email when a new Module is available.


Module 1—Role of the Preceptor in a Clinical Environment

Module 2—Clinical Dynamics – Assessment & Performance

Module 3—Creating Effective Learning Programs

Module 4—Legal, Ethical, and Professional Considerations

In addition to the four modules, the CH-AP training program includes tools designed to allow audiologists to customize what they study to meet their unique needs.


CH-AP HANDBOOK

The CH-AP Participant Handbook contains more in-depth information on the program, eligibility requirements, training modules, assessments and the National Registry of Audiology Preceptors™.


ELIGIBILITY

Audiologists: The CH-AP Certificate Program is open to licensed audiologists, including licensed audiologists serving as university faculty who provide audiological clinical instruction in university clinics.

Students: AuD students may register for and audit the courses, but may not apply for the CH-APTM certificate until after becoming a licensed practicing audiologist, at which time training would need to be repeated.

TRAINING WINDOW

CH-AP training modules must be completed within 12 months after registration is completed and purchased. No CEU's are required to maintain your certificate as the certificate expires in five (5) years.
