(a) In order to receive a trainee license, a person must apply to the Department and
provide acceptable evidence of his or her completion of the required courses pursuant
to subsection (e) of Section 8 of this Act, or its equivalent as determined by the
Department. A trainee license expires 12 months from the date of issue and is non-renewable.
(b) A trainee shall perform the functions of a hearing instrument dispenser in accordance
with the Department rules and only under the direct supervision of a hearing instrument
dispenser or audiologist who is licensed in the State. For the purposes of this Section, “direct supervision” means that the licensed hearing instrument dispenser or audiologist shall give final
approval to all work performed by the trainee and shall be physically present anytime
the trainee has contact with the client. The licensed hearing instrument dispenser or audiologist is responsible for all
of the work that is performed by the trainee.
(c) The Department may limit the number of trainees that may be under the direct supervision
of the same licensed hearing instrument dispenser or licensed audiologist.
(d) The Department may establish a trainee licensing fee by rule.
