Good morning,

This question is for those in the New York state area:  What is needed for an HTL to become licensed to work in New York state.  I have two students who are moving to the area after graduation (August), and will be eligible to sit for the ASCP HTL.  The problem is the license requirements are listing HT as the qualifying certification.  One student has contacted a recruiter and the state licensure agency and still is not sure what to do.  
The state society said that since there are no HTL programs, a HT exam would have to be passed.  Huh???
The students are moving from Texas to New York state, and will hold a BS HTL, eligibility date for BOC of Aug 15.
Any help would be appreciated.
