OVERVIEW OF LICENSURE PROCESS FOR MEDICAL LABORATORY TECHNOLOGY

 

  • Licensure is typically obtained by passing a certification exam and graduating from an accredited program. 
  • States typically require graduates of programs to become licensed within five years or to hold a certain amount of experience, which must have been obtained through employment rather than as part of training completed as part of a degree program. 
  • Other states may use certifications as a means of determining pay grades or salary ranges for technicians.
