Good morning, my name is Dante Skillings and I’m a current CLS student here in Virginia State. I am considering relocating to California upon completion of my program. I’m just wondering if licensure in California would be all that I need to practice in California or is the federal certification required in addition to California licensure… Thank you
Good Morning Dante.
The short answer is yes, besides your ASCP certification, you will need to apply for a CLS license with the Laboratory Field Services Department in the State of California. The best way to go about obtaining it is to apply for the license as you are taking the the ASCP. It is a convoluted process that can take some time, but it is getting better. Hope this helps.
My name is Walter Urban I work for CAMLT – the California Association for Medical Laboratory Technology (CAMLT).
I am reaching out to you at the recommendation of Jim Flanigan at ASCLS.
While it might seem a bit strange I am sending you this email, in the end we both care and support Clinical Laboratory Professionals – the only difference is we focus solely on California, so we do not competed with ASCLS.
I am reaching out because “more than ever before”, we believe there is a significant benefit for California members of ASCLA to also be a member of CAMLT.
We believe this because of the following reasons:
1. ASCLS members mostly likely enjoy a higher salary then many states because of California Lab Professional Licensing – this might not be the case if CAMLT did not employ and support 2 professional lobbyists to fight efforts by legislators to eliminate licensing in California
2. We develop and maintain California focused continuing education content and classes
3. Our new Dual Member discount program will allow ASCLS members to join CAMLT with a 50% discount. The discount is good through June 1, 2017 – Full CAMLT Membership is only $60.00 per year with the discount!
4. For any lab professional who purchases computers, airline tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars, sporting tickets, entertainment, flowers, general merchandise, tax services, luggage or backpacks, streaming video equipment, gifts (meat, gift baskets, cookies, chocolate and popcorn to name a few) they can save hundreds or thousands of dollars each year with our new CAMLT Membership Benefits program.

Ramona, we hope you agree the new CAMLT membership program is an incredible value for California Lab professionals.
The new program will launch in the next few days in the CAMLT Members Only Section of the website.
I am reaching out to determine if you can help us reach California ASCLS members via email to help spread the word?
We are hoping you can help us spread the word on the “value of the new CAMLT Members program”. The value created by a career and earning perspective and to the significant member discount savings in everything from computers to flowers.
If possible, can we schedule time to discuss the opportunity?
