RE: [Histonet] Need Some Help

From:"Lee & Peggy Wenk"

Is this a certification exam? Then they need to take the HT or HTL exam from
the ASCP Board of Registry.

Is this a competency exam/assessment? I would suggest the Self-Assessment
Booklets from the National Society of Histotechnology (NSH). There are a
total of 14 books - 5 on non- staining - fixation, processing, sectioning,
safety, laboratory operations (equipment, lab math, management, etc.), as
well as 9 booklets on stains (theory/H&E/Giemsa, microorganisms, connective
tissue, carbohydrates, etc.). Or, you can buy them all on 1 CD.

Pick and chose questions for your competency assessments/exams. Good idea
for all histo labs that need to demonstrate competency of their histotechs,
such as for CAP requirements.

I work for a staffing agency.  Don't worry, I am not soliciting.  For
compliance reasons, all our employees need to take an exam in their field
before they can begin work.  Unfortunately, we currently do not have an exam
for a histology tech.  I do not want to lose creditability by continuing to
ask my histology employees to take a MLT exam.  Would anyone be interested
in providing me a histology technician exam?
Please contact me if you would be able to help.  Thank you in advance.
