Medical Laboratory Technology

As a member of the Idaho Consortium for Medical Laboratory Technology Education (ICMLTE), CSI is pleased to offer the Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) Program. The MLT program prepares graduates to work as medical lab technicians qualified to perform various laboratory procedures, including low, medium, and high-complexity testing. The MLT program includes instruction in the laboratory disciplines of microbiology, hematology, medical chemistry, transfusion medicine, urinalysis, and lab operations. Coursework is closely connected to student laboratory opportunities. After completing the theory for the discipline, clinical internship experiences are arranged offering students opportunities to practice in real-world laboratory environments.

Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to sit for a national certification examination. The certification of choice for most employers is through the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Board of Certification. An individual must pass this examination to be eligible for most employment opportunities in medical labs in Idaho and Washington.

The Medical Laboratory Technology program is currently only available to students who are sponsored by an industry partner. Sponsored students may begin MLT courses each spring semester. Program requirements other than the MLT courses are open to all students who meet the specific course prerequisites. An AAS degree can be obtained in a 24-month course of study following program admittance. A minimum grade point average of C (2.0) is required in all MLT courses. To learn more about what it takes to be sponsored by industry, please contact: Rene' Rambur, Health Workforce Program Manager.

Program Accreditation: ICMLTE is currently petitioning the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) to transfer accreditation from North Idaho College to the ICMLTE and expects the transfer to occur Spring 2024.
