The OJT route does say a minimum of 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours)
with 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours) of biology and chemistry. 

This allows for someone with, for example, 3 years of college (90 semester
hours) to take the HT exam. They don't have an associate degree, they don't
don't a baccalaurate degree. They are somewhere in between. This person can
therefore take the HT exam, as they have more than the minimum 60 semester
hours that is required (which is about what is needed for an associate

Just for clarification, it's 12 semester hours of biology and chemistry
combined. Not 12 semester hours each. So if each course is 4 semester hours,
then two biology classes and one chemistry class would qualify. Or one
biology and two chemistry classes.

Subject: [Histonet] HT certifacation

I have two young people in our lab that would like to get certified as a HT.
One is looking into the Harford Community College on line and the other is
trying for the "At least 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of academic
credit from a regionally accredited college/university, with a combination
of 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours) of biology and chemistry ".  I have
three questions.  Does anyone know anything about the Harford School?  Has
anyone had a student from there to do their practicum in your lab?  and I
just want to be sure that the second student does not have to have an
associate degree any longer; Just the 60 semester hours and 12 of
biology/chemistry  is that correct? Thank you Kathy Gorham H.T.
