Re: info request about certification exam


You will need to contact ASCP for an application to take the QIHC exam.  You can
go to their web site at:
contact someone on the web site and ask them to send you the application.  Send
in your form to ASCP and they will tell you if you qualify to sit for the exam.
It sounds like you will qualify with no problem.  They will then sign you up and
give you the assignments, this is an all practical exam given twice a year at the
moment.  My group the IHCRG can help you find tissues and reagents you might not
have for the exam.  You can register with my committee by going to our web site
at:  download the membership form and sent it back to me.  You
must be a member on NSH to join the IHCRG committee, I can give you an NSH
membership application form if you are not already a member.  There is no cost to
join the group.
