The BRPT’s CSE post-test will be available to eligible ACCP Becoming A Sleep Educator program attendees in early October at a cost of $40.

Use the words “ACCP CSE List” in the subject line, and provide your 1) Name. 2) Healthcare credential and number, or license number and state. 3) Date you attended the ACCP course and location. 4) E-mail address. 5) Mailing address. 6) Telephone number(s). In early October we will e-mail you a link and instructions to register for the post-test.
Following successful completion of the post-test, you will receive a certificate as a Clinical Sleep Educator. This opportunity for previous ACCP program attendees will be available only once and will not be repeated next year.
The BRPT held its first Clinical Sleep Educator Certificate Program at the FOCUS conference in Nashville, Tennessee on May 9 and received an overwhelming response. A second program will be offered in conjunction with BRPT’s Symposium in Reno, Nevada on September 20, and a third will be offered in 2013 on May 8 in conjunction with the Spring FOCUS conference in Nashville.
The first meeting of the JTA Expert Panel – a group of 9-12 Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who are sleep technologists with a wide range of work experience and representative of a broad geographic area and diverse backgrounds – will take place September 28 and 29 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The JTA survey will ask technologists to rank a wide range of tasks with regard to frequency and importance. The survey results are then compiled and analyzed by Pearson VUE psychometricians and reviewed by the Expert Panel.
SAVE THE DATE – for the next Sleep Health Management Resources/BRPT free webinar during Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week – October 1-5. The webinar is entitled Sleep Health Taking a BITE out of OSA with Oral Appliance Therapy. Stay tuned for registration details coming soon.
