The only regulation that I'm aware of is CLIA, which says the
person doing the grossing must have a minimum of an associate
degree and be adequately trained at grossing. (All people
grossing previously to ?1994? were grandfathered it. If
someone started grossing after ?1994?, they had to have
the associate degree. (The date was either 1994 or 1995, I
don't remember - long term memory, you know.))

I don't have the regulation in front of me, but I don't think
CLIA was specific as to what type of associate degree or
what constitutes training. Of course, with any position,
there is the continuing need to demonstrate competency.

States could have stricter regulations than this, but all
this is the minimum.

Hopefully, someone has the CLIA '88 rules (and the five
years of arguments before the final rules) in front
of them.
