Certificate in Medical Technology
The 62-week (2,548 hour) Certificate in Medical Technology program prepares students for the State of California licensure examination for Clinical Laboratory Technologists (CLT), for the National Certification Agency for Clinical Laboratory Personnel's Clinical Laboratory Scientist (CLS) examination, and for the Board of Registry examination for medical technology certification by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (MT-ASCP). The job opportunities for graduates are primarily in hospital and reference laboratories, but students are well prepared for careers as laboratory supervisors, research technicians, laboratory consultants, industrial technical representatives, marketing specialists for laboratory products, etc. Graduates who excel and aspire to master's and doctoral degrees are well prepared to enter many specialty disciplines; e.g., medicine (especially human and veterinary clinical pathology), microbiology, immunology, clinical chemistry, etc.
