IHS COURSE VS. ILE TEST PREP


What is the difference between the IHS Distance Learning for Professionals in Hearing Health Sciences course and ILE Test Prep?

Distance Learning for Professionals in Hearing Health Sciences provides foundational knowledge for individuals beginning their career as a hearing aid specialist. In tandem with hands-on training, the course provides the knowledge and training necessary to prepare for independent practice.

ILE Test Prep is an exam preparation tool. It is not a substitute for the course. It alone will not prepare someone for licensed practice. IHS recommends a trainee complete Distance Learning for Professionals in Hearing Health Sciences while engaging in hands-on training. Then, use ILE Test Prep to prepare for the written licensing examination.

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL LICENSING EXAMINATION FOR HEARING HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

The International Licensing Examination for Hearing Healthcare Professionals (ILE) is used by 44 U.S. states and 5 Canadian provinces in their licensing process. This practice-based exam measures competence in entry-level hearing aid specialists using 105 multiple-choice questions. The questions are largely situation-based – they do not call for simple memorization, but rather for analysis and application of knowledge gained through training.

2/18/2020

THE CORRECT ANSWER IS B!
Immediately eliminate D. You should have ensured that the physician has removed any interfering cerumen (which would prevent your taking an impression in the first place). C is attractive because it sounds as if you are making a complete impression. But we do not capture the entire pinna in an impression, so the choice is too broad and is not correct. Choice A is also attractive because we want to prevent otoblock movement as much as possible. But that deals with the selection of the correct size otoblock rather than its placement - you always want to place the otoblock just beyond the second bend. This leaves B as the only correct answer.
