Research has shown that at least 70% of all medical decisions rely on laboratory data. As a laboratory professional, you will play a huge role in this process. CTC's Medical Lab Technician (MLT) program is NAACLS accredited which means you can transfer your credits to any other NAACLS program if you ever have to move. We have a 100% hire rate upon graduation for students staying in Central Texas, as well as a 100% pass rate for the ASCP board of certification exam.

MLT classes cover a variety of subjects from introduction to clinical laboratory science, clinical chemistry, clinical microbiology, hematology, urinalysis, immunology, molecular, parasitiology, transfusion services as well as 760 clinical hours, which will help our students master the field of clinical laboratory science.
