To continue on Candyce's thought. What about those with HTL certification? I have never had an employer differentiate between HT and HTL despite the difference in education and expected knowledge.

I have listened to all of this talk about certification, and no one
has yet to comment on those of us with degrees. Should a histotech
with a degree start at a higher salary base? What about certification?
Considering we are only eligible after a year in the field, we are a
lot of times neglected as far as base salary is concerned even though
we do have a degree, but are not yet certified. How should ASCP, or
even our employers address that issue?
