New RPSGT And CPSGT Exam Blueprints Now Available

Candidates preparing to take the RPSGT and CPSGT exams between now and June 30 should continue to use the 2007 AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events. New exam blueprints for the RPSGT exam can be found here and the new exam blueprints for the CPSGT exam can be found here. The new blueprints are the result of the 2012 Job Task Analysis (JTA). RPSGT and CPSGT exams will be built against the new exam blueprints and the revised AASM Manual for the Scoring of Sleep and Associated Events (Version 2.0) and will be implemented on exams effective July 1, 2013. It's important to note that exam items are built against recommended guidelines, not specific lab protocols. Revised candidate handbooks and study guides will be available soon.


Free April Webinar A Big Success

More than 1,300 BRPT credential holders participated in the April BRPT/Sleep Health Management Resources webinar Safety In The Sleep Center which was a big success! Thanks to all who participated and to the terrific SHMR team for producing another excellent program. Here's what some of you had to say:

"Good review on medical emergencies as we deal with these medical conditions on a nightly basis but not always having to deal with emergencies."

"For those labs without a strong OSHA compliance program, this was an excellent start for dialogue."

"Good information and helpful in updating current policies."

"Excellent material. Thank you!"


Be sure to mark your calendars for the next BRPT/SHMR webinar July 29-August 2 entitled Sleep Issues Facing Women. These pre-recorded webinars, produced by Sleep Health Management Resources Inc., are one hour in length and each carries 1.0 CSTE (continuing sleep technology education) credit.
