One can certainly take the HT/HTL in research/veterinary areas and I did
HTL without anyone supervising me, other than a DVM pathologist who
looked at the slides, he only oohhhh and aaahhhh'd.  Everything was sent off
without a hitch, and passed without incident.    My HT was done in
a hospital lab situation, pathologists were available, but could have
been done in a veterinary situation just as easily.

I fulfulled all certification requirements, and know that there are several
individuals who read the practical portion who are well versed in just
animal histology/tissues. As far as identification of tissues/stains on
test, if they still do that, there are some easily acquired histology text
books, not too expensive, one should have on hand in a lab daily.

I found testing directions very specific and easy to follow, plus it
taught me a disipline in some histotechnics that have stayed with me to
this day.  If you follow directions to the letter and have some help with
looking at finished slides, you should pass the test nicely.  Remember,
the Histonet is there to help you along the way!

Good luck, don't be intimidated, go for it --- it pays off in the end
