Join Inspired by Ida
For hearing care professionals
To qualify for the label, complete the following steps:
The Inspired by Ida badge is valid for one year. To maintain your Inspired by Ida status, you must complete an additional course in the Learning Hall or a short online survey. Every year, you will receive an email with further instructions one month before the expiration date. Renewal of the badge is free.
Clinics can also join the Inspired by Ida program and earn the special Inspired clinic badge. This will allow you to differentiate your brand and show your commitment to high-quality, person-centered hearing care.
To receive an Inspired by Ida clinic badge, at least 80% of clinic staff need to complete the two required person-centered care courses. Front-end staff only have to complete the course "Getting Started with Person-Centered Care."
For your clinic to become Inspired by Ida, you must complete the following steps:
Once the Ida Institute has verified that your employees have completed the courses, we will send you a ZIP file with the bonus promotional materials. You will also receive permission to use the special Inspired by Ida label for clinics in your online marketing. US and Canada-based clinics will also be included in the findhearing.com database.
Remember, you're responsible for maintaining at least 80% of clinic staff who have completed the required course(s). Once a year, we will review your staff list to verify that authorizations are up to date. In case of change in personnel, kindly send an email to email@example.com to inform us about new staff members who should receive training.
