Sleep Health - Associate of Applied Science

Oregon Tech’s Associate of Applied Science in Sleep Health offers two options:

The Clinical Sleep Health option is designed for health professionals preparing to sit for the Certification in Clinical Sleep Health (CCSH) examination offered through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT).  The BRPT requires CCSH applicants to hold an associate degree.  Students who already hold an associate degree may want to consider our Clinical Sleep Health certificate program.

The Polysomnographic Technology option is designed for students preparing to sit for the Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) examination offered through the 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 option is also available to students who are currently RPSGT’s looking for a pathway to higher education or career advancement.
