This course is designed for healthcare professionals with ear health experience to fine-tune their tympanometry skills for completing patient assessments. Students of this course will learn to perform tympanometry point-of-care testing to provide a more detailed assessment of middle ear health (especially in children).
Tympanometry is a test that measures the function and movement of the eardrum and middle ear. The results of tympanometry are represented on a graph called a tympanogram. Tympanometry is not a hearing test but a measure of energy transmission through the middle ear.
In the Tympanometry training course, you will develop and enhance your knowledge and tympanometry skills when performing simple ear health assessments. You will revise the ear’s anatomy and physiology, perform otoscopy, and practice your tympanometry skills safely and effectively.
The workshop session consists of an anatomy refresher, principles of Tympanometry, Tympanometry testing and results comprehension. Students work with peers in the classroom to conduct simulated examinations as part of the practical skills activities.
Your practical skills workshop provides an engaging setting to enable meaningful learning and offers opportunities to practice your newly learnt skills. At the end of your workshop, you should have the ability to:
Entrants should have: A minimum of six months’ employment or experience working with clients in a clinical environment. High language, literacy, and numeracy levels – sufficient to interpret medical documents/referrals/requests and write medical notes and reports.
Full day face-to-face workshop.
Create an understanding of middle ear function with Tympanometry, and use this course to understand otoscopy, mechanics of the ear canal, the impact on acoustics, and bone conduction capability via air pressure testing. With tympanometry readings, being able to interpret and document results, and an understanding of ear function, expands knowledge that can help to support the diagnosis of treatable conditions and diseases.
The face-to-face workshop involves lecture and practical workshop activities involving condition recognition, ear health assessment, otoscopy, and tympanometry skills for performing simple ear health assessments.
Students enrolled in Benchmarque Group courses should adhere to the following principles:
As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning have been completed. The hours of active learning estimated above should act as a guide to CPD hours.

This workshop is approximately 8 hours of active learning. The hours of active learning should act as a guide to CPD hours. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning they have completed. As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD.
There are no associated assessments with this program. All learning is completed in your workshop.
We teach tympanometry in a face-to-face workshop due to the necessity for the correct usage of the equipment and its intricacies. Simulation learning provides an engaging setting to enable meaningful learning and offers opportunities to practice your newly learnt skills.
At the completion of the program, successful students will receive a Certificate of Attendance and Digital Badge for the Tympanometry Program.
