We want to help you reach your potential, so we help you find the lab training and financial assistance you need to cover the cost of licensing and certifications.See licensing requirements by state
Degrees & Certifications
Licensing and certification can be confusing. It’s hard enough keeping up with the requirements of your home state, so how do you get compliant for places you’ve never been? Degrees and certifications depend on your field and specialty. Luckily, our compliance experts work with you, your recruiter, and the facility to ensure you have all relevant credentials required for traveling lab jobs.
Some compliance requirements are the same across the board, but there are others that will depend on your lab specialty. These are the three main parts of compliance:
- Occupational health records: Required immunizations and health examinations
- Documentation: Tax forms, insurance paperwork, and licenses
- Testing: Certifications, online trainings, and workplace safety exams
