Graduate in Hearcare Assistant Course (HCA)
Alison has been delighted to receive support from the management team at the Basingstoke store to further her career in audiology.
Her studies saw Alison pass her assignments alongside practical exams to become a fully qualified hearcare assistant.
Our ears are amazing
The world of audiology has fascinated Alison since she joined the Specsavers team and she says: 'It's amazing how technology has advanced over the years and how small hearing aids have now become.
'Lots of customers tend to have negative or mis-held perceptions about hearing products and services, so for me, the most satisfying part of my job is seeing how people's lives are transformed with the right solution and advice. Hearing is such an important sense and it is a shame to see people living life with impaired hearing for a long period of time.
'I would add that most people leave our store amazed, with many saying they wished they had visited us years ago.'
Is it time you had a hearing test?
Alison, along with her colleagues, are available to offer a free hearing test for you or a family member.
Alison adds: 'Over Christmas, we find many people become aware of their hearing loss and it can be the trigger to make them seek out a solution for the long term. We would like to assure everyone that we are here to help and answer any questions you may have.'
