An audiometrist (Australia) has different qualifications than an audiologist. In Australia an audiometrist usually has a TAFE qualification and needs to be accredited with a professional body to provide services to eligible pensioners and war veterans via the Office of Hearing Services program.Under the OHS scheme Audiometrists and Audiologists are seen as performing the same tasks. An audiometrist usually performs hearing tests and prescribes hearing aids, as well as other hearing aid related tasks. The majority of Audiometrists also provide extensive rehabilitation services for hearing aid users. In country areas it is quite common for Audiometrists to provide diagnostic services as well.
