Who We Are

  The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) is an independent, nonprofit certification board that cultivates the highest professional and ethical standards for polysomnographic technologists by providing the leading internationally recognized credential in sleep technology – the Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) credential.  Since the first credentialing exam administration in 1979 BRPT has credentialed over 20,000 RPSGTs in the United States, Canada, and 32 countries overseas.  In March of 2010, the BRPT launched an entry-level certificate exam, the Certified Polysomnographic Technician (CPSGT).

In 2012, BRPT launched its Clinical Sleep Educator (CSE) Program, offering an assessment-based certificate to qualifying individuals. At the end of 2013, BRPT announced the development of the Certification In Clinical Sleep Health (CCSH) exam, an advanced credentialing examination for healthcare providers who work directly with sleep medicine patients, families and practitioners to coordinate and manage patient care, improve outcomes, educate patients and the community, and advocate for the importance of good sleep. The Certification in Clinical Sleep Health (CCSH) exam was offered for the first time in May 2014.

In addition to administering the RPSGT, CPSGT and CCSH exams in the United States and internationally, the BRPT also maintains the RPSGT registry and CPSGT roster.  The BRPT also provides its Continuing Sleep Technology Education (CSTE) Program for educational providers seeking continuing education credits for their offerings.

The BRPT is led by an active, engaged volunteer Board of Directors comprised of experts in the field of polysomnography and includes at least one “public” member representing the interests of the consumer / patient community.  The Board is international in scope and blends the expertise of technologists and physicians to establish and maintain credentialing guidelines for polysomnographic technologists and technicians.

The BRPT Executive Office is based in McLean, VA and includes an Executive Director, Credentialing Director, Credentialing Coordinator and a Program Administrator.  The RPSGT, CPSGT and CCSH exams are developed by teams of experienced item writers / Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) under the direction of an Exam Development Committee (EDC).  Exam form development, psychometric services and test delivery are managed through Pearson VUE, headquartered in Minneapolis, MN.
