Prometric Exam Syllabus for Lab Technician (DHA and other)

Healthcare is considered as one of the fastest growing sectors in the Middle East. And their attractive salary packages and facilities attract every healthcare worker to work in Gulf countries. Since lab technicians work in Gulf countries like Dubai, Oman, Saudi, Qatar, and other countries, candidates need to pass the Prometric exam.

To schedule a Prometric exam, candidates need to visit the Prometric website. On the Prometric website, select the exam you wish to schedule. For DHA and SCFHS you need an eligibility number which you need to generate from their respective official websites. For OMSB and DHP you can book a Prometric exam without an eligibility number.

Candidates must also complete PSV (Primary Source Verification) to work and get the license. For PSV, visit the Dataflow Group website and choose the country for which you need to process your document verification. Next, create an account and provide the required details and upload the required documents to get verified.

If you provide any incorrect details or upload any improper documents, you may get a “Discrepancy” remark on your report. If you are unsure or have any doubts about dataflow verification and Prometric exam booking, you can contact us.
