It is difficult to interview individuals that do not have any experience in the detailed and manual technology of the Histology lab, but you can find the right individuals to become exceptional Histotechnologists. Although it can be very time consuming to train individuals, the right individual worthy of all the effort must have the right attitude! If the individuals have the necessary science background to understand the complex processes used in Histotechnology and have the right attitude, then lack of aptitude can be overcome. I have been involved, for several years, in training individuals with no Histology experienced and have been always rewarded by the performance of the individuals that wanted to learn and become more than a embedding or microtomy techie. Histotechnology is so much more than slapping tissue into a mold or hacking paraffin sections off a block. Everything done in the Histology lab is directly tied to a patient outcome and quality and precision area must.  Make sure the individuals understand how difficult it will be to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to pass the ASCP exam, while only working part-time for 24 months. Find out what type of commitment they are willing to make to better Histotechnology, the patient outcome and themselves before you and your team invest any effort. Above all, the right attitude is the big first step in becoming a competent Histotechnologist that is dedicated and compassionate about improving the patient experience.

> Hello,

These candidates are not histotechs but are willing to do online training and take ASCP board exam within 24 months. I would appreciate some help with what questions to ask. I did not attend the 1st interviews but these were done by our lab manager who does not know a lot about what we do I histology.............
