New High School Equivalency is Acceptable Prerequisite to Enroll in CMT Training Programs

January 1, 2014 was the deadline for passing the GED® High School Equivalency (HSE) exam.  The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has replaced the GED® with a new HSE exam, the HiSET™.  To learn more about the new exam, please visit http://dese.mo.gov/alrs/hse/.

Regulation 19 CSR 30-84.020 Certified  Medication Technician Training Program (6) (A) 1., indicates that a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) Certificate is required to be eligible to enroll in the course.  Since the HiSET™ exam has replaced the GED® exam in Missouri, passing the HiSET™ exam is also acceptable.

If you have any questions, please contact the Section for Long-Term Care Regulation, Health Education Unit at 573-526-5686.
