6.     Rural/Remote Criteria - Removed

          The HAASA Board have decided to remove the rural/remote criteria.

          The units of competency/continuing education programs offered by

          various organisations such as TAFE (NSW) through its OTEN division,

          University of New England, self-study, reading, hearing journals,

          presenting papers, Audiology Now and Audiology Online, manufacturers,

          company training programs,  all provide opportunities for further education.

          These should be utilised where possible, as these activities enable a

          forum for discussion and interaction with colleagues.

Evidence of attendance and/or completion must be held for the purposes of auditing.
