AMT launches new certification!

AMT has launched a new certification for Medical Laboratory Assistants. The certification was developed for practitioners who assist and perform tasks associated with routine testing in a clinical laboratory setting. The AMT certification exam, which will only be administered online, focuses on verifying knowledge needed to perform basic laboratory tasks--knowledge about such areas as quality improvement, laboratory safety, procedures, practice standards, and regulatory requirements.

Once certified by AMT, Certified Medical Laboratory Assistants will need to document activities attesting to their ongoing competency every three years. This process will help practitioners to sustain competency throughout their careers, beyond the time of certification.
