Chapter 276-2 EXAMINATIONS
The Examination of applicants for a dispenser's license and an apprentice permit shall be conducted at least once during each calendar quarter.
The examination shall consist of sections on the: physics of sound; structure and function of the ear; measurement of hearing levels as they pertain to the fitting of hearing aids; selection and adaptation of hearing aids to persons with deficient hearing; making of impressions for ear molds; jurisprudence; and of medical and rehabilitation agencies and referral methods. The Board in its discretion may adopt and administer as its examination the final Examination for Certification of the International Hearing Society, and may employ the grading services of the International Hearing Society. This shall in no way remove from the discretion of the Board the right to review such grades or the right to examine applicants in subjects other than those contained in the International Hearing Society examination.
A professional licensing board shall have the authority to refuse to grant a license to an applicant upon a finding by a majority of the entire board that the applicant has:
|(1)||Failed to demonstrate the qualifications or standards for a license. If the Board is not satisfied as to the applicant's qualifications, it may deny a license without prior hearing; provided however, that the applicant shall be allowed to appear before the board if he or she so desires.|
