Greetings Alan and Leanne,
I want to thank you so very much for sharing your expertise and knowledge with me in your 3 day Pre-Exam Seminar. I attended your seminar this past July. The seminar itself was extremely helpful, and I learned a great deal during the live sessions. I also purchased the CD Pack of the recorded seminar which I watched at least 20 times! This, along with the practice test questions, really helped prepared me for my Hearing Aid Specialist Licensing Exam. I am happy to report that I sat for the exam on September 13, 2016 and passed on my first attempt! I attribute my success specially to replaying each segment of your video countless times. In my preparation for the test, I utilized a number of the recommended books, however, if was your videos and live seminar that helped me synthesize the information in a manner that allowed me to understand what the questions were asking so that I could formulate the correct answer. This is a life changing event for me. It is an honor to practice in this field and to be a part of this amazing industry. I look forward to a long career as a Hearing Aid Specialist.
Thank You Alan and Leanne for your help.
I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful week in Daytona! Not only did I learn and understand new concepts, but also I was able to validate what I already knew. Your speakers were superb and the syllabus was more than complete. I think the diversity of the class made it that much more interesting; we had some that were totally green to those that were going to take their boards the very next month...yet we all learned from each other, got along so well and had a lot of fun during a week in which we all thought we would have none. Touché!
I did not know if you had seen the above journal article about cerumen removal management from the AAOHNS September 2008 issue. It falls right in line with Dr. Valdes' lecture. I thought these guidelines might be something you could add to your already comprehensive package of handouts.
Again, I thank you and I look forward to seeing you in Macon in January!

The ALS seminar was a great learning experience! I took an employee of mine with me who needed knowledge, which turned out, that I ended up learning a great deal of information as well. I was very impressed with the whole experience! Not only were the classes informative, but they were fun! The dinners were wonderful and the company that came with it was even better! I certainly recommend the ALS seminar for everyone, whether you are new to the field or already experienced!
I'm so grateful that I didn't miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime course!
You won't be disappointed!
Alan Lowell Seminars supplied me with not only the tools I needed to effectively pass my state licensing test, but the confidence, encouragement, and enthusiasm to go back and begin working immediately in a field that is challenging and can be very intimidating. The week I spent with Mr. Lowell and his associates was filled with intense class time that was wonderfully balanced with warm, charming company in a hospitable and enjoyable atmosphere. Thank you Mr. Lowell and your expert team for helping me prepare for what I truly believe will be a most rewarding and fulfilling career as a Hearing Aid Specialist.
Thanks again Alan. If any of you are ever in The Washington area and need a tour guide or just a friendly face, don't hesitate to give me a call. Janet
I am a beginner in the in the industry and am working through the IIHIS distance learning course. I was nearing the end of my distance training when my employer found the ALS Hearing Healthcare New Dispenser Training Class and suggested I might enroll. I wasn't sure if it would be helpful (since I was close to finished with the IIHIS distance course work), but decided to give it a try any ways. I AM SO GLAD I DID! This training has been WAY more helpful than I thought it ever could be. The various instructors were all experts in their field, and obviously passionate about what they did and were engaging to learn from. Alan Lowell especially is amazing, not only as a powerful and trained professional educator, but also as a gracious host (the accommodations blew me away, Alan takes care of everything and is genuinely concerned about your comfort and welfare throughout the entire week). We had a large range of experience in our group of students from beginner (me) to licensed practicing dispensers with years of experience under their belt, and everybody in our group could not believe how much they learned. If you are on the fence at all about doing this program, JUST DO IT, you won't regret it.
P.S. I hope that helps, if you need a quote to focus on any aspect of the course, let me know, I would love to get you any copy you could use to promote this course, it's been amazing, thanks again for your wonderful program.
I just received a flyer for the upcoming class in April and saw my picture on the front! Ha ha! It totally reminded me to send you an email about how great the class is! I had no idea going into the Hearing Healthcare New Dispenser Training Class that I would come out an expert! I really feel confident that I will pass my exam with flying colors now that I have the course experience and the DVDs to watch. My father, who is an audiologist and I opened Albemarle Audiology in January 2009. I was terrified before the class at the thought of opening a business which I knew so little about. However, with the experience and knowledge I have gained through your seminar, I am positive our new business with thrive.
Thank you for all of your help. We will owe our success to Alan Lowell Seminars

To Whom It May Concern:
My husband, Paulo Nascimento, and I both took Alan Lowell's 5 day course in Daytona Beach, FL April 19-25, 2009. We both feel that it was a great curriculum and know that we have both benefited a lot from having the personal contact with the instructors as well as with the other students. I had previously purchased the DVDs to study for my board exam and though much of what is in the DVDs is touched on during the course, the actual seminar went far beyond what I could get from watching them alone. Having hands on experience allowed us to use tools and materials that differ from those used by our local mentor and I feel will help us have the confidence to bring in new materials and techniques as we progress as individual hearing aid dispensers. In our case, we work in a very busy doctor's office and our mentor's time is divided between clinical audiology and hearing aids. Being able to go to Daytona Beach allowed us to have the one on one time dedicated to hearing aids that we needed to come back with the confidence to address patients' needs ourselves instead of just watching our mentor. For us, the Hearing Healthcare New Dispenser Training Class was what we needed to transition from just observers, to being observed and soon, to dispensing ourselves. The DVDs that are part of the take home package are just icing on the cake since they allow us to review everything at leisure and, before our boards, they are definitely going to be a must see. We highly recommend this course. Just don't expect to do much sight-seeing during class days. It really is a full day of class, every day.
