CCSH Educational Grant

CCSH Pathway 3 Educational Grant

Introduction

The BRPT is, once again excited to offer a series of CCSH Educational Grants to provide assistance to RPSGTs who are interested in pursuing the CCSH credential through Pathway 3. These educational grants are intended for RPSGTs who are unable to apply through CCSH Pathways 1 or 2 and/or are unable to financially pursue the CCSH designated education program(s) approved for Pathway 3 of the CCSH Credential.

Overview

This educational grant program represents one element of BRPT’s commitment to the continued advancement of the field and is designed to help clinical sleep health specialists, who desire to further their education and careers by seeking out new opportunities for growth and advancement in the field of sleep medicine.

Each CCSH Educational Grant will cover up to, but not to exceed, $250 of the registration cost for an approved in-person conference or the cost to complete online modules for any approved CCSH educational program, such as the AAST CCSH Designated Self Study Program, the AASM A-STEP CCSH Education Program, the Academy of Sleep and Wellness Program, the Collin College Continuing Education Health Sciences Program or the Academy of Sleep Wake Science CCSH Exam Preparatory Course.  Any additional costs above $250 will be the responsibility of the grant recipient. The BRPT will select 10 grant recipients, each of whom will have up to three months to start the educational modules or register for the conference.
