Dorchester, ON – Audioscan, the #1 hearing instrument verification system manufacturer in North America, hosted an exclusive student tour and educational program at their world headquarters near London, Ontario, Canada on August 30, 2017. The facility hosted 22 graduate students pursuing master’s and PhD degrees in audiology from Western University, one of the leading schools of audiology in Canada. Students learned about the history of the company and the many industry innovations developed by Audioscan. They toured interactive learning stations throughout the company’s advanced production and research facilities. Several product demonstrations and lectures on best practice verification techniques were provided by Audioscan staff, including hands-on training with the Verifit®2, the industry’s only triple binaural hearing instrument verification system.
