The clinical polysomnographic technology courses require placement in clinical sites. Students are responsible for selecting an accredited sleep disorder facility prior to admission into the program. Site agreements between Oregon Tech and the accredited facility must be in place for the student to begin these courses. On site preceptors will work in conjunction with Oregon Tech faculty to ensure an excellent training experience. CPR and HIPAA certification is also required prior to beginning the clinical courses. Clinical sites require background checks and some may require drug screening.
