CLS in cali but now in Las Vegas, Nevada

21 months ago

Hi guys! I just have inquiry. Im interested in taking ASCP certification. I worked as a CLS in cali for 2 to 3 years 8 years ago. Im a foreign grad by the way and Im still a licensed CLS. I know that the qualifications to be able to take the ASCP cert is in their website.

My problem is it seems like Im not qualified based on my experience. Im not sure though. Anyway, is it possible for me to take the ASCPi? Is ASCP same as ASCPi aside from it being international and can I apply to companies hiring people with ASCP cert if I get ASCPi cert? I would love to work in Chicago or NY. Thank you!

Anyone please? And what is AMT? Is it a licensure also like CLS or ASCP? Is there a state that allows AMT only? I just saw it on other post. Cause in Cali only Licensed CLS can work. Thanks guys!

If you are not qualified to take the ASCP, You can not take it.

But the ASCP is national certification so the guidelines are a bit more specific. You may be able to be certified for just a specific state, like NY or CA.

Hi CLS in Vegas. I'm a foreign graduate. I got my ASCPi last October 2011 and got a job on April 2012. Its just the same as ASCP but youre just foreign graduate, some hospital or lab would acknowledge your credentials and hire you as Medical Technologist (ASCPi). Just keep applying and somebody will hire you (I just got 6 months clinical training when I applied) so dont loose hope! :)

Hi there! Did you apply for the NYS license and took the exam via ASCP before you got to work in NY while holding a (MT)ASCPi certificate? I took my ASCPi in the Philippines last 2011 and moved here to NY early this year. Right now I am planning to apply for the NYS license and NYS don't consider/acknowledge my ASCPi cert. I was told I still have to take the exam and it seems it doesn't mean I would get an ASCP cert if I pass it since taking the ASCP exam have requirements for eligibility too.
