Re: [Histonet] certification

From:Jennifer MacDonald

The ASCP (American Society for Clinical Pathology) certifies laboratory 
personnel.  This is a national certification, recognized by all states, 
although there are some states that require a license in addition.  In 
order to become certified you are required to take an exam.   To be 
eligible for the HT certification examination, you must have an AS degree 
and one year of experience in a histology laboratory or graduate from a 
NAACLS accredited program.  For the HTL level certification a BS degree is 
required and one year experience, or the BS degree and graduation from a 
NAACLS accredited program. Visit and go to the Board of 
Registry (BOR) area   Should you have any other questions please feel free 
to contact me.

[Histonet] certification

What exactly makes one a certified HT or HTL tech? Does this vary by
state? I've never heard of it and googling it isn't helping.
