Contact ASCP to see if your Argentina experience and degree will fullfil the requirement to sit for the HT certification exam her in the USA. Our HT certification is valid nationally (in any state), some states also have a liscence program, but I thought I heard that FL did away with their state liscense???? Contact the board of registery at ASCP www.ascp.org
or Ken Gillespie personally at the BOR at "Gillespie, Kenneth" <KennethG@ascp.org> and ask him how your training in Argentina will transfer here.
