Fitting a Patient


"My degree from the hearing instrument specialist program has allowed me to switch careers into a challenging new field filled with rewards, both personal and financial. Becoming a hearing instrument specialist has allowed me to flourish personally while enriching the lives of others through better hearing."

(Mitch Yarbrough, A.A.S., BC-HIS; Columbia Hearing Centers - Spokane ENT Clinic, P.S., SFCC Hearing Instrument Specialist Program Graduate)


"The SFCC Hearing Instrument Specialist program has given me a profession. With this two year degree program I am now earning more than I expected when I left college. The potential for earning a living, while at the same time helping people get back part of their life, is all within your grasp. It is a thrill to help someone hear when he or she thought there was no hope. I am now the manager of a hearing center and licensed in two states. There is a freedom in knowing that the service you perform is a real need in people’s lives. There are opportunities within the hearing industry for self-employment, dispensing for private practice, or with major manufacturers that have their own stand alone offices. Spokane Falls is a wonderful place to learn and grow into the professional you want to become."
