Ears

You have selected Ears which means you have the option to start your Ear Health learning pathway! The Ear Health learning pathway starts by building your base knowledge with the nationally-accredited online program, Foundations of Ear Health (level 1). You can then continue on with 4 more nationally-accredited Courses (level 2) - options are dependent on your current qualifications, and topics include the ear and hearing health (including wax removal), otitis media, tympanometry and microsuction. Once you hit ‘apply now’ from any of the individual course pages below, you can bundle as many courses as you like. Happy learning!

We look forward to expanding the Ear Health Learning Pathway in 2021 with some exciting new programs.

Workplace Activities

Perform Blood Collection 

The Benchmarque Group is required to gather evidence of a student’s ability to transfer skills and knowledge from the classroom environment to the workplace environment. We use workplace observation as evidence of this transfer.


Observation in the Workplace


Students are required to provide a Third Party Report that has been signed off, in the primary healthcare setting, by a workplace colleague (observer). The requirement is that your observer is of equal qualification to you or above. Typically, this will be a medical practitioner, practice manager or practice nurse that performs the identified tasks as part of their role. The observer’s role can also include, but not be limited to, mentoring the student to develop relevant workplace skills and knowledge, appropriate to the course content. We recommend that the observer briefly reviews the course material for the individual they are observing prior to undertaking the workplace observation. If you believe that the student’s knowledge, understanding and performance is inadequate in some of the areas covered in this Third Party Report, we suggest that the student continues to practice, with mentorship, to help improve their performance to a satisfactory level.


Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 


This Third Party Report may be used as evidence of the observers annual CPD activity.


Completing the Report 


All information you submit will be treated confidentially and will only be shared with the student and The Benchmarque Group. Should you have any questions or concerns with regard to completing this Third Party Report please contact The Benchmarque Group on Ph: 1300 855 568. Please note: a Benchmarque Group assessor may contact you should they require additional information to assist in making the assessment decision.
