Development of National Competency Standards for Audiologists in Australia

The National Competency Standards are intended to fully articulate the minimum skills, knowledge and behaviours required for ‘entry level’ independent practice for audiologists in Australia and provide the standards against which the public can expect safe practice.

When complete, the National Competency Standards for Audiologists in Australia is intended to become the primary document which describes the professional skills of practitioners that are considered appropriately skilled and competent to practice independently.

This consultation is intended to provide high-level feedback to inform the development of the first draft of the National Competency Standards, which will be released in draft form for consultation later in 2019.

If you have further questions about the project or would like to participate in this consultation, please contact Rachel Adkins, Accreditation and Policy Officer via email at

Consultation responses will be accepted until Friday 29 March 2019.
