  1. Hi. Im a Chemical Engineering graduate. Is it required for me to submit certification of employment in chemical laboratory by a registered chemists?

    1. Hello, Jane!

      You are qualified to take the Chemical Technician Licensure Exam as long as you meet the minimum 30 units requirement in Chemistry and Chemistry-related subjects (including those involving chemical analysis, for example, Food Chemistry and Analysis).

      Generally, BS Chemical Engineering graduates meet the minimum 30-unit requirement to take the ChemTech Boards.

      If your earned units are still less than 30, you may add units from your Chemistry-related work experience. During your application, submit a certification indicating your number of years of lab work experience, signed by a registered chemist working full time in the said laboratory (along with the other documents in your application).

      Happy to help!

      Yours truly,
      The SRC Team
