Medical Technologist School in South Carolina


While every employer may have specific qualifications in mind when hiring medical technologists, the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation doesn’t have an official South Carolina medical technologist certification, nor does it license or register medical technologists as a prerequisite to practicing in the State of South Carolina.

However, many employers stipulate that a job candidate must have completed a national certification examination, such as by the National Credentialing Agency (NCA) examination, the American Medical Technologists (AMT) examination, or the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) examination.

Entry level jobs may not require certification and may allow for on-the-job training. South Carolina also has hospital-based programs.  These are accredited 12 month programs that take place at several South Carolina hospitals that provide training to students. The programs typically include both didactic lectures and laboratory experience.   

Medical technologists have several career paths that, with the appropriate education and training, allow them to specialize. For example, a "cytotechnologist" has specialized training that enables them to detect cell changes so they can identify precancerous, malignant and infectious diseases, such as meningitis. A histotechnologist typically has a bachelor’s degree in science and specializes in preparing body tissue samples, such as from human bones or organs, for examination by pathologists.
