You can apply for certification as MT(AAB), MLT(AAB), POLT(AAB) or PBT(AAB) through the AAB Board of Registry (ABOR) by filling out the online application.

Before proceeding to fill out the online application, make sure that you will be able to provide the following information where applicable.

  • Education information - institutions attended, locations, dates, and degrees obtained.
  • Employment history - institutions, addresses and telephone numbers, positions held and duties performed, and dates.
  • HHS (formerly HEW) clinical laboratory technologist (CLT) card.  You will be able to upload a scanned version of your card.  If you lost your HHS card and wish to obtain a replacement, contact Jay Powell, Professional Examination Service, at phone:  (212)367-4341, email:  jpowell@proexam.org.
  • Academic transcripts (U.S. and international) must be forwarded to the AAB Board of Registry Office directly from the issuing institution and must be official and contain the seal of the educational institution.  (Transcript Release Form.)  All degrees received from educational institutions outside the United States must be evaluated for equivalency by an agency acceptable to the AAB Board of Registry.  ABOR requires copies of the transcript release forms that you send to your educational institutions.  Scanned versions can be uploaded.
  • Accepted credit cards for applying online - MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover.

All items throughout the application must be completed.  Please designate "not applicable" where necessary.  If space is insufficient, mail additional information to the ABOR office.  Make sure your name and address appear on all additional information.

Certification Application and Examination Fees: Application fees are non-refundable. Examination fees are refundable if the examination is cancelled sufficiently in advance. View fees for MT(AAB)/MLT(AAB), POLT(AAB), and PBT(AAB).

Limit: Two reexaminations. Applicants who have failed an AAB Board of Registry examination three times may reapply for certification two years after the date of the last failed examination.

EXAMINATIONS: All applicants for certification must pass the appropriate AAB Board of Registry examination(s).

Please allow a minimum of six to eight weeks to process your application because receipt of documentation, such as transcripts and employer verifications, takes time. Contact the ABOR office anytime to ask about the status of your application. However decisions made by the board with regard to your application will only be conveyed by formal written correspondence from the ABOR office, not by telephone.
