Insurance

We have sourced insurance at a competitive cost, which we can explain to you on the day of your training. However, if you have insurance as an independent, your insurer should support you with this new skill set you will be offering.

Leads for future work

Our EWRS website creates enquiries all over the UK for ear wax removal. We can allocate you an area and provide ear wax removal clients within these areas for you as part of our service.

We can link our diary system to yours and allocate work when you have availability without bothering you, therefore keeping you busy as and when you require work. We can also phone/text you to confirm when you can attend the client.

We can provide an electronic tablet with the necessary form for completion and signing off by the client once the work is performed. This ensures the client is satisfied and that you are protected by completing the necessary information.

Remittance

EWRS pays £45 per ear wax removal at the client’s home. Should you have to reattend for a further visit if the wax cannot be removed the first time, then you will receive £20 until the job is complete.

Can I remove wax for myself?

If you have passed your course successfully you are able to provide this service.

Pricing

The pricing of this course is £1950. This includes 2 days of training (Lunch provided) and all of the equipment mentioned above.
