All I have is a "histology assistant" description I put together. It is mostly clerical, instrument up keep and other duties. My employer does not hire uncertified techs- due to CLIA license, grossing, FISH & molecular duties ( high complexity). I hope to be a clinical site eventually, and then they will have to complete their certification within one year -if they are hired on. 
If you think that will help, I can send it on.
