Dialysis Technicians

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

In most states, dialysis technicians are not required to be registered, certified, or licensed. However, several states, such as California and New Mexico, do require practicing dialysis technicians to have certification; in addition, a growing number of states are considering legislation to make certification mandatory. In some states, technicians are required to pass a test before they can work with patients. You will need to check with your state's department of health or licensing board to determine specific requirements for your area.
