Upon admission to a training school, for all levels of Medical Laboratory Sciences, we require students to submit an application for Indexing within 30 days following commencement of training.

The Board through indexing verifies submissions to ensure that students admitted to training schools meet the admission criteria for their program of choice. Once verification is completed, the Board assigns an ”Index Number” which is a unique reference that will remain your identification throughout training and practice.


The KMLTTB offers examination in three levels:

  • Degree (BSc. Medical Laboratory Sciences)
  • Diploma
  • Certificate

The Board requires exam applicants to fulfill specific requirements to do Board Exams. Candidates are typically required to fill a Board Examination Application Form and attach the relevant documents, which must be reviewed for conformity.
