Scheduled examination dates are available here.

Examination Requirements: All applicants must take and successfully pass a written and practical examination prior to being registered. Once the application is complete, the Committee will make you eligible to take the written examination. I.H.S. will provide directions on how to schedule and take the written examination. If you fail the written examination, your application will be denied and you will need to reapply to retake the examination. If you have failed more than twice you will be required to make a personal appearance, along with your hearing aid dealer supervisor, before the Committee for approval to sit for the examination a third time. Once you have passed the written examination, you will be scheduled to take the practical examination. The practical examination is administered four times a year. If you fail the practical examination, your application will be denied and you will need to reapply to retake the examination. However, you will only be required to take those segments of the practical examination that you failed.

Applicants Licensed in Other States: Indiana does not offer reciprocity to applicants licensed in another state. All applicants must meet the application and examination requirements. If you have taken the I.H.S. written examination in another state you will need to contact I.H.S. and have them send your score report to the Committee. After receiving all required documents, and assuming prior passage of the I.H.S. written examination, you will be scheduled to take the practical examination. If you have not previously taken the I.H.S. written examination, you will need to take and pass that before taking the practical examination.

If you have any questions regarding your application, please contact our office at (317) 234-2067 or at pla4@pla.in.gov.
