"As a student of the Hearing Instrument Specialist program at SFCC since fall 2004,
I am impressed with their excellent teaching methods and professional guidance.
I am eagerly looking forward to putting all I have learned academically into practice.
After graduation I hope to go back to my own country to set up my own practice to
help the large number of hearing impaired people in Malaysia."

"The Hearing Instrument Specialist program is a wonderful program. I really like
the instructors; they are amazing. The program has taught me a lot about the ear’s
anatomy, diseases of the ear, hearing aid amplification and patient care. As an
international student, the program has been very challenging because English is
my third language, but my instructors are always there helping all the students."

"Being here in America as an international student at SFCC for almost a year now,
the Hearing Instrument Specialist program has really taught me about the human ear
and the difficulty those with hearing loss must deal with. Our classes are complete
with lab tools and materials which significantly aid our learning much more about
hearing aids. The instructors are really helpful when I am facing a problem. Since
English is my second language learning something new in this professional field
is really a challenge for me. However I am very grateful for the help I receive
from my instructors and classmates; it makes a big difference."
