[Histonet] Pathologist Assistant

From:"Nita Searcy"

I have had a request from a pathologist to attempt getting our grossing
assistant qualified to take the PA exam. This person just completed the
degree; has been grossing ~ 1. 5 years after training , and being deemed
competent on "simple" cases, bx's, tonsils, etc.( by the certified PA &
pathologist) He has/ is  performing histology, autopsies, etc. 
Both the certified PA and myself  (which obviously is not good enough)
has explained that he is NOT qualified under the new  ASCP guidelines
but I have to do it and secure documentation.

Can someone point me in the right direction to secure what I need?
