History and Mission

The Kansas Board of Examiners in the Fitting and Dispensing of Hearing Instruments was established in 1968. The mission of the Board is to establish and enforce standards to ensure that the people of Kansas receive competent and ethical hearing aid care.


Practical exams are also administered to coincide with board meetings. For further information regarding the exams please view the exam overview page.

Board Members

The Board is appointed by the Governor and is composed of five members; three licensed hearing instrument dispensers and two who are representatives of the general public. The three hearing instrument dispensers must have been licensed by the State of Kansas for at least five years. The Board also employs one, part-time executive officer. The Board meets twice a year (spring and fall).
