Nationwide, the field of sleep health is growing rapidly.

This includes technologists working directly in sleep labs as well as other health professionals working with sleep patients in dental offices, hospitals, general practice clinics, and various other locations. As an academic leader in the field of sleep health, Oregon Tech offers programs to help students achieve (or advance) a career in the field of sleep.

The Polysomnographic Technology program is designed for students preparing to sit for the Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) examination offered through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT). While completion of our Polysomnographic Technology certificate program is sufficient to sit for the exam, the AAS may provide a pathway to higher education or career advancement. This AAS is also available to students who are currently RPSGT’s looking for a pathway to higher education or career advancement.

Polysomnographic Technologists perform and score overnight sleep studies which lead to identification and treatment of sleep disorders.  The large majority of a PSG tech’s work is completed overnight. Along with sleep studies, work includes much patient interaction and patient education.

Associate Degree Certificate

Oregon Tech’s Polysomnography program was the first of its kind and continues to lead the way in Polysomnographic education. Our graduates exceed a 95% pass rate of the national board exam (RPSGT) – far above the national average of less than 65%. Graduates have not struggled to find employment and are well prepared for careers in the growing field of sleep.

Students are trained by highly skilled technologists across the nation. Clinical coursework is completed in a fully-equipped accredited sleep lab in or near the student’s residence rather than a typical classroom lab setting.

After obtaining the RPSGT credential, students may also want to consider the Clinical Sleep Health program or the Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management.
