Tuition for the academic (non-respiratory) courses required to complete this program are extra. See the curriculum guide or speak with a Pathways Advisor to determine proper course selection.

Insufficient sleep is a worldwide epidemic that causes significant health problems such as depression, anxiety, obesity and hypertension. Polysomnographic technologists use electronic monitoring devices to record brain activity, eye and muscle movement, limb movements, blood oxygen levels and respiration in patients with suspected sleep disorders to diagnose and treat the symptoms. ACC's sleep medicine program offers students an opportunity to learn about sleep as a component of health and the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors needed to be a professional sleep technologist. Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared for RPSGT credentialing through BRPT. (RPSGT = Registered Polysomnographic Sleep Technologist).
