	maybe i've interpreted this incorrectly.....but i understand the
age-specific competencies to refer to the lab tech's ability to deal with
patients of various ages.  when i worked in a hospital, we had to review
guidelines for how to handle infant/toddler, young children, adolescent,
adult and geriatric patients.  this was done annually along with the other
safety stuff.  in many labs, the age-related competencies don't really apply
to histology since we don't have patient contact, unless you have the lucky
duties of assisting with things like FNA's, renal or bm bx collections.
