The Mission of the AAB Board of Registry

The AAB Board of Registry, since its inception in 1962, has championed the concept of a career ladder that includes "alternate routes" to formal academic degrees.

In doing so, the AAB Board of Registry places more importance on having the requisite knowledge and skills than on where or how the knowledge and skills are obtained.

Therefore, the AAB Board of Registry maintains alternate pathways for certification that permit individuals to qualify through a combination of formal education, training and experience.

The AAB Board of Registry's requirements for Medical Technologist (MT) are consistent with the CLIA requirements for individuals performing high complexity testing.
