Preparing for Your Exam
The BRPT offers a variety of resources to help candidates prepare for the exams including candidate handbooks, study guides, practice exams and reference materials. Good luck in your preparation!
BRPT Sleep Technology Approved Resource (STAR) Program
The BRPT has been a long-time proponent of formal education for sleep technologists. However, the majority of technologists entering the field still do so through on-the-job training and self-study education. Over the years the BRPT Education Advisory Committee has reviewed and approved alternative education programs for exam eligibility. In early 2012, in an effort to better recognize these education providers, the BRPT created the STAR (Sleep Technology Approved Resource) Program.
Continuing Sleep Technology Education (CSTE) Program
The BRPT’s Continuing Sleep Technology Education (CSTE) Program facilitates the approval of high quality continuing education opportunities to meet the professional needs of sleep technicians and technologists, and other healthcare professionals working in clinical sleep health.
Formal Accredited Programs
The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) is an organization that provides accreditation for various programs in health education including Polysomnography. The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CO-ARC) is an organization that provides accreditation for respiratory care with various add-on tracks.
Pediatric Sleep Certificate Exam
Sleep health professionals who pass the BRPT Pediatric Sleep Certificate Exam have demonstrated their skill and knowledge in Pediatric Sleep. Upon passing the exam, recipients will be awarded an assessment-based certificate in the form of a digital badge. A digital badge is a visual representation of a credential, certification, or accomplishment.
