Anyone know how much FL shakes you down for this license and if they charge you yearly so that you can keep it?

Just Wondering,

With your HT(ASCP) you automatically can apply for a technician license. My recommendation is to apply for a technologist license which can be done by using the following routes:

1) HT(ASCP), 5 years of pertinent laboratory experience & 48 contact hours in advanced techniques such as IHC & Molecular


The state test is no longer available, the only acceptance is the ASCP.

If you have your ASCP, there is not another test to take for Florida, just, CEU classes that you need.  Check out the website link below.

  Can any of you tell me how the Florida License requirements compare to the 
HT(ASCP)?  I am registered with ASCP, but am curious about the FL testing 
process.  My husband just heard about a remotely possible job opportunity in 
Melbourne, FL, and I am wondering what it would take for me to, well, basically, 
get a job down there?
  Thanks in advance for any information you can give me,
