Re: [Histonet] ASCP certification question

Hey Leah--
Programs are certified and certification is maintained by NAACLS.  If a school doesn't apply and go through the process or is not recertified when their renewal is due, they aren't accredited.  ASCP requires accredited education.  It's like a lab and the CAP or takes time and a lot of effort and additional costs to be certified.
You can get the education and be well-qualified to do the work through other programs, but why would you go through all that effort and expense if you can't sit for the 'gold standard' of the ASCP exam??
The links above will help--give me a call if you need more!

You do really want to work through an accredited program.  Several are internet-based including the one out of Hartford CT and another out of Indiana University.

Go to the NACCLS web site and there you will find all the certified programs.
Sometimes a program exists but has not the certification for internal reasons.

How do we know what histology programs or schools can get us the ASCP? Phoenix
College has a program but it's not on the NSH list of schools. Is there a
reason for that?
