Background On The Announcement of the ABSM Sleep Technologist Exam

On December 17, 2010 BRPT was notified that the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has decided to develop a certification exam for sleep technologists to be administered through the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM). Notification was received in a letter from the ABSM.

That letter, the BRPT response, and subsequent correspondence and other documents relating to the development of the ABSM exam, including communications to BRPT's credential holders, are presented below in chronological order. Relevant documents will be added on a regular basis.
