[Histonet] Re: Problems with certification

From:"John Auld"

Hi Meryl
I'm a bit behind with Histonet at the moment so excuse the delay.
Our colleagues in the USE will no doubt offer advice on how to overcome
your situation, but why do you want to go somewhere were they don't appear
to want you?

There is a shortage of histotechs here in the UK so you should be able to
get a job suitable to your experience and abilities within a couple of
hundred miles rather than several thousand. This makes it much easier to go
hoem if things don't turn out as you'd hoped.

Good luck in your search

Hi there,

I am a histologist in the UK with nearly 7 years experience, but I wish to
move to the USA. However I'm having terrible problems finding work as it
seems it's virtually impossible for me to become certified in the USA as
none of my work experience is in an American lab- I've spoken to the ASCP
and the NCA and they both say that I'm not elligeable to apply, and I'm
currently waiting to hear back from the AMT (fingers crossed!).....is there

any way I can become certified or should I just give up? I'm starting to
a bit despondant.

sincerely, Meryl Roberts.
