Courses and Workshops

We run a programme of Courses and Workshops.  

Courses aim to equip delegates with a new skill and additional knowledge.  They are usually, but not always, for those professionals who support our patients.

Workshops are an opportunity to try equipment and practice new skills.  Workshops are usually to help our patients get the best from their Cochlear Implants. 

Some courses and workshops are FREE to USAIS patients and those who support them, most are held on University of Southampton premises but check individual course details for the most up to date and correct information.  Dates are subject to change.

Courses for those who provide support
