Spring 2024 session of CSHBC HID Practical Exam will be limited to retakes from Fall 2023

The Spring 2024 session of the CSHBC Hearing Instrument Dispensing (HID) Practical Exam will be limited to a small number of Exam retake candidates from the Fall 2023 session. As usual, the Spring 2024 session will be administered at Douglas College, Coquitlam Campus, and will take place on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. CSHBC is unable to accommodate any new candidates for the Spring 2024 session of the HID Practical Exam.

CSHBC is limiting the number of candidates taking the Spring 2024 session of the HID Practical Exam because of resource and capacity issues related to the amalgamation of CSHBC with six other health regulatory colleges into the new College of Health and Care Professionals of British Columbia. CSHBC is involved in extensive planning and preparation for the amalgamation, which will take effect June 28, 2024.

While CSHBC anticipates that College of Health and Care Professionals of BC will conduct two full sessions of the exam in the early and late Fall of 2024, sessions have not been confirmed yet. More information will be communicated as it becomes available.
