I completely agree with what Teri has mentioned regarding the problems with making absolute requirements for
histology positions.  I've been searching for a histology job in San Francisco & I know a number of professional websites
that list histology jobs for clinical, research, Biotech Pharmaceutical companies & other industry.  Sites like Biospace, 
JuJu, Indeed, Simply Hired, Higher Ed Jobs, NSH & a number of others.  

Often - a number of institutions/companies will state in their requirements (AA, BA, BS HT, HTL...or 
equivalent experience or knowledge of techniques or methods required by the position.  I've even
seen a few university positions (research) stating training & supervision would be provided by Principal Investigator
of the lab.

For a number of years, I've worked in research based histology labs where I have trained & worked side-by-side
with some of the best knowledgeable & talented individuals who either had not previous training in histology or
had their degrees in a completely different field!

You can list it as highly desirable instead of a requirement.
