For all laboratory professionals, the ASCP Board of Certification (BOC) is here to help you maintain your certification and excel in your career!

As the oldest and largest certification agency for laboratory professionals, the BOC has certified more than 500,000 individuals since it was established and has become the gold standard for certification of laboratory personnel. ASCP's 2013 Wage Survey of U.S. Clinical Laboratories found that certified laboratory professionals earn more than their non-certified counterparts.
