I am not quite sure that I understand your question.  Neither CAP nor
ASCP require a person to be certified to cut blocks and slides, do
stains or embed tissue.  On the other hand I don't think that you can
honestly refer to yourself as a Histology "Technician" unless you have
the certification to back it up and make it official.  The state of
Florida does require state licensure as an HT or HTL to do these things
but that is different from a national standard or licensure.

Does anyone know of ASCP or CAP requiring Histology Technicians to be
certified ? 
I sent the director of ASCP an e-mail, I have not got a response yet.
