How to Become a Medical Technician in Vermont

Becoming a Medical Tech in Vermont

As the profession grows and the salaries increase, it’s also likely that some changes in policy will be made to prevent under qualified candidates from working in this high need area. Those who hold certification and work in Vermont are encouraged to keep up to date on possible changes in policy and procedure as far as the lack of licensing status in Vermont is concerned. This can best be done by keeping in contact with the Vermont Secretary of State Office of Professional Regulation. For now, certification is enough to practice in the field in a legal manner.

To begin the process of certification, those who wish to become Medical Technicians should begin by graduating high school and enrolling in one of the accredited Vermont medical technician schools that offer the minimum of an associate degree in the field of medical technology. This degree serves as a foundation for the individual to be approved to take the certification exam. This is something that must be done once the student has completed their course work and received an associate degree or higher in the field of medical technology.

To take the exam for certification, applicants should contact the American Society for Clinical Pathologists Board of Certification and request an application. The applicant then returns the application along with any required paperwork to the Board of Certification. Once the paperwork has been returned to the board and the associate degree has been verified, the applicant will be eligible for testing. Those who take the certification test and finish it with satisfactory scores will receive their certification as a Medical Technician. This can be presented to employers in the state of Vermont as verification of the Medical Technicians knowledge in the field of medical technology.
