You will complete Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) courses online through LATI's online eLearning system. In addition, you will complete 8 hours of lab per course credit on the LATI campus. So, in a 4 credit class, you can expect approximately 32 hours of on-campus lab training. After you finish all prerequisites and MLT coursework, you will complete a clinical practicum at an approved clinical site (see LATI Med Lab Tech for approved clinical sites).
LATI E-Degrees are "hybrid" - an innovative blend of distance and on-campus learning. With hybrid education, you get maximum time/location flexibility and crucial lab experience.
After completing the prerequisite courses, you should be able to complete the MLT-specific coursework in five semesters of part-time enrollment, followed by one semester of a full-time clinical practicum.
