Ear Wax Removal – Irrigation Only Course

An intensive course providing knowledge and practical experience of ear irrigation and instrumentation with real patients. Delegate numbers are kept very small and training can be offered with a choice of irrigation equipment. May also be useful for Audiologists who are already performing wax removal by other methods and wish to add irrigation to their service.




By the end of the course you will be able to:

• Discuss ear anatomy, physiology and common ear conditions in relation to aural care
• Describe own scope of practice for aural care and recognise when to refer on
• Compare and contrast equipment, principles, and contraindications for wax removal procedures
• Evaluate the relative effectiveness of cerumenolytics
• Safely perform aural care techniques (irrigation and instrumentation) based on current recognised professional best practice guidance
• Reflect on the areas of consent, documentation and further ear care management




1) Delegates must be experienced in Otoscopy and currently performing it in practice. Delegates who do not meet this criteria will be invited to attend the Ear Examination (Otoscopy) course first.

2) Delegates must be working in the field of Audiology as a Registered Audiologist or under the supervision of a Registered Audiologist, or in a related medical role e.g. ENT or practice nurse.
