RE: [Histonet] Problems with certification

From:"Rittman, Barry R"

In general I have found that Histotechs trained in the UK are highly
regarded. The UK training is generally more formal with practical
examinations that are extensive.
Are you histo certified in the UK?
If so I think that you will not have much of a problem finding a job
here, USA certified or not.
Have to be careful to research cost of living etc., as medical insurance
takes a big bite.  Also conditions of employment including career
opportunities and type and quantity of work, supervisory role etc.
Good luck

Not sure who you talked to but there are plenty of places here in the US
that will hire a tech without being certified. I can't tell you how many
people I've worked with that were not certified, some good some not so
good but keep trying and good luck.

I am a histologist in the UK with nearly 7 years experience, but I wish
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
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!)
any way I can become certified or should I just give up? I'm starting to
a bit despondant.

sincerely, Meryl Roberts.
