I can't find Certified techs to work in my lab. I have 1 registered tech
close to retirement, 1 non-certified tech with 30+ years in histology and
she is limited to microtomy only, and me.  I have 2 OJT techs that are
really quite good. I am teaching them everything I know, making them look at
their specials under the scope before they call me over to verify the stain
for them. They have met the educational requirements and I am trying with
what I have to give them the knowledge and the ability to

troubleshoot. I hired them with the understanding that I expect them to sit
for their registry within a reasonable amount of time otherwise they are
gone. Until we are seen by our peers the MT's, CT's and the Pathologist's I
will just continue to grow my own techs.
