Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Depending on what type of laboratory technician or technologist you want to be, you may need certification or licensing, at least in some states. Organizations that offer certification include American Medical Technologists, American Association of Bioanalysts, American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification, and the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Check with your state’s occupational licensing board to find out if there are specific requirements for your area. Moreover, make sure any program or community college you are considering will provide the courses and experience you need for licensing.
