RE: [Histonet] HT practical

From:"Bernice Frederick"

So why can't slides be sent to reviewers? I always thought the practical was
good as it shows a tech can cut (which may be an issue) as well as know
staining can you troubleshoot micrometry issues if you in
theory may or may not be cutting? When I first cam into the field, the first
thing done in my interview was to sit me at a microtome and show I could
cut.After I was hired I had 3 months to get the quality and quantity of
techs with at least 10 years experience on me. Needless to say, I can cut
and darn well at that!

the practical portion was discontinued a couple of years ago. The exam is 
computer only. I was told that it was getting too expensive to fly people to

Chicago to review the slides. I understand that the questions go into depth 
and critical thinking and problem solving is a majority of the exam now.

Hi everyone,

I have two techs who are getting ready to apply for the HT exam but I can't 
find any info about the practical portion of the exam.  Was it discontinued?

Or am I not looking in the right place on the ASCP BOR page?
