National Registration Exam


The American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) administers the National Registry exam for Histotechnician (HT) certification. This exam consists of two parts including a written (multiple choice) and practical portion. Upon passing both parts of this examination you will be granted HT certification and licensed nationwide. Both graduates from the certificate and associate degree routes offered through Darton College are eligible to sit for the HT examination.

A few states administer their own competency exams however the National certification may be accepted in lieu of this requirement.
