Sleep Education

As an accredited sleep medicine facility you and your staff must maintain proficiency in sleep studies through continuing education. The Institute for Continuing Education has more approved sleep-oriented courses (52) than any other organization. Each course is approved by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) for three (3) CSTEs and fulfills all the requirements needed for licensure. Plus, as a bonus, all our sleep courses also count for CEUs needed by respiratory therapists.

Throughout our 20-year history the Institute for Continuing Education has been committed to providing sleep medicine and respiratory therapy with the highest level of up-to-date continuing education to remain on top of changes in the industry.

Standards for Standards for Accreditation American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM)

All center staff providers, including licensed physicians, psychologists, advanced practice registered nurses and physicians assistants, must earn at least 10 credits per year averaged over three years of approved continuing education courses in sleep medicine. Compliance with applicable continuing education requirements in sleep medicine must be documented.

It is important to note that CECs are no longer specified or limited by category. To re-certify, an RPSGT must simply earn 50 approved CECs over the course of 5 years. There are no limits on the number of CECs earned by specific program or activity type.

State Sleep Societies

In recent years there has been a significant expansion in the number of state and regional sleep societies. By uniting together, sleep professionals are able to benefit from relevant educational opportunities and advance the sleep field at the local level. This unity also provides collective strength when advocating for the sleep field through interactions with legislators and policy makers.

In many states these societies were formed to address specific regulatory and legislative issues affecting the profession of sleep technology.

For DENTISTS:

Dental sleep medicine has not been a major area of focus for most sleep societies. However, state and regional sleep societies offer dentists an outstanding opportunity to network with sleep physicians and sleep technologists from local sleep disorders centers. Dentists also can help educate sleep professionals about oral appliance therapy and the role of dentistry in treating sleep-disordered breathing.

The following directory is provided as a resource to help connect you with your state or regional sleep society.
