Ear Syringing Microsuction Training Course

The micro suction Ear Wax Removal Training program is run by experienced micro suction audiologists who see over 20,000 ears a year so are very experienced with both routine and complex micro suction cases.


One of the fastest growing areas in healthcare. There are over 4 million procedures a year being conducted and it is still a massive growing market with a ageing population.


There is a huge demand for micro suction services nationally with the demand outstripping the capacity to see the volume of patients requiring the service. Now is the ideal time to provide a much needed service in your community.


We are aware of expensive training programs out there which rely solely on dummy training, synthetic wax, hotel conference rooms, training enmasse and will then sign you off on the procedure without having ever practiced on a real human ear. We will tell you now regardless of what is said to enroll you on to a course without real patients you will not have the skills or confidence to perform the procedure safely. We have had many professionals call us searching for and having to pay out for a second course in order to develop the skills and confidence they actually need. This is why we limit our numbers and spend weeks in between courses getting you the patients you will need on the day. Think twice pay once!


The ear micro suction course runs for two delegates at a time to allow for maximum exposure to your clinical tutor and practical practice on real patients. This will allow the delegate the time they need to get up to speed with the use of micro suction loupes. We want to provide a course with real value and real practical application for health care professionals, this is the reason why we keep our numbers very limited per training course.


The cost of the ear wax removal course is £700 with no vat applicable. The course also incorporates ear irrigation training along with the micro suction procedure. Competence in both procedures is paramount to be a good all round ear wax removal practitioner. This gives you the value you need with out the need to pay for separate courses unnecessarily when to all extent in purposes you really need both to remove ear wax effectively on a case by case basis. We will train you on both on the same day.


The earwax removal courses are Midlands based in the heart of Birmingham at our two purpose built clinical training centers in Sutton Coldfield and Moseley. These locations are purpose built centers, we do not see you in conference centers or hotel suites. These are clinical sites for a clinical procedure.


There is now a 3 month interest free installment plan available for all course and equipment packages to help spread the cost of your setup as you build your business.


All delegates will practice on real patients, we go to great lengths to ensure that the courses are run in a way which gives our delegates relevant exposure to real cases coming in to clinic. You will both observe typical patients coming in for ear wax removal procedures then participate in removing ear wax on real patients.

    Read Our FAQ’s

    We would not recommend Q Twists, hopi ear candles or any of its derivatives as we have found these to cause wax to be pushed right to the back of the ear. This can cause the eardrum to perforate or at the very least cause trauma to the ear.

    Every PX is different and every circumstance we see is different.
    Some px’s need regular ear wax removal every 6-12 months however it is difficult to identify when a px requires it as they usually cannot see inside their ears to establish if they need  clinical intervention.

    A good trick would be to buy a small ear endoscope which can be purchased from Amazon for £5-10 pounds which will allow you to look in you ears regularly and gage when it might be a good idea to come in to have wax removed rather then wait for ears to completely block.

    Ear wax removal can help with vertigo. Your balance organ (vestibular saccule) is connected to your ears and any blockage of the ear canal can affect the compliance of your eardrum and in turn affect middle ear pressure which can make you disorientated and cause vertigo.

    We often find when removing ear wax from the eardrum itself px can suddenly become very dizzy as the pressure is released of the eardrum which can cause some very temporary rotary dizziness which lasts for a 1-2 mins before fatiguing.

    We always advice a qualified Audiologist or a practitioner nurse with experience in ear nose and throat.

    Any other practitioner with a background not in Audiology simply wont have the experience to deal with complex difficult cases and you usually want a audiologist with 100’s of ear wax removal procedures under their belt.

    We have dealt with so many cases were by patients have had terrible experiences with practitioners who have made glaring mistakes.

    Ear wax removal drops usually peroxide based including name brands like Otex and Sodium bicarbonate drops are great for breaking down hard abrasive wax in the ear ready for ear wax removal.

    In some instances they can break down wax sufficiently to the extent were by earwax removal may not be required as the wax has sufficiently dissolved, however we find that this in most cases depends on the size of the cavity.

    We usually deal with a lot of cases were by the wax has turned in to a semi liquid which slides down the ear canal and settles on the drum completely sealing the canal.  This makes for a far more uncomfortable experience for the patient as the symptoms are far more acute.

    We have four clinics in Birmingham covering both North and South Birmingham

    For some px’s olive oil works well however for others it can exacerbate the problem further.  The primary reason for this is every ear canal has a slightly different size and orientation.  Narrower ear canals are by design going to get blocked more often then cavities with a larger diameter. 

    If you have been using olive oil and there is no relief then it might be sensible to have it professionally removed,  rather then persisting with drops which can sometimes cause the wax to slip on to the eardrum and make the condition worse.

    Every patient comes in with varying symptoms.

    The symptoms can be as follow

    Tinnitus (new or exisiting tinnitus which has increased in intensity)

    vertigo- mild to severe balance issues

    otalgia- pain along the back of the neck or jaw either mild or acute in nature.  This sometime presents as a numbness

    Reduction in hearing

    Itchiness or crackling in the ear

    Most kits found on Amazon or heavily advertised are not regulated or endorsed by the medical and health regulation authority in the uk.  We have found som many patients who have come in the otitis externa infections, perforations (tear of the eardrum),  or ear wax pushed on to the eardrum. This is a consequence of using self syringing kits from Amazon or ebay or using tvidlers or Q Twists or its derivatives.

    One of the symptoms of impacted ear wax is tinnitus.  Having a ear wax removal procedure with endoscopic microsuction will help relieve the symptoms of tinnitus.
