Earning an ASCP Histotechnology Certification Demonstrates Passion, Knowledge

Histotechnology is a growing field that helps doctors and researchers to diagnose and treat disease. You can be a part of it by earning your degree in histotechnology and learning how to complete your Histotechnician Certification.

Argosy University offers an Associate of Applied Science in Histotechnology that prepares graduates to take the American Society for Clinical Psychology (ASCP) Histotechnician Board of Certification exam. The coursework is designed for students who are dedicated to helping others but prefer a lab environment to a doctor’s office or hospital. The program explores the technical, critical thinking and teamwork skills grads need to become an essential part of a healthcare team. The degree is offered at Argosy University, Dallas and Argosy University, Twin Cities.

As a histology technician, you’ll prepare human, animal or plant tissue for microscopic examination by a pathologist. The work of histology technicians allows doctors to identify disease and directly benefits patients.

When you earn your Histotechnician Certification, you show employers that you are serious and dedicated—the exam is voluntary but passing it shows that you’ve met the highest level of academic and clinical standards. According to the ASCP, “individuals have the responsibility to demonstrate competence before expecting the recognition and rewards of a profession. Certification and the process of certificate maintenance through continuing education lend credibility to the profession in legislative and policy arenas.”

Histotechnology professionals are also in-demand, according to the United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics. The industry is set to grow quickly, with over 42,000 jobs being added in the next 10 years.
