Since 2006, the AASM’s Accredited Sleep Technologist Education Program (A-STEP) has provided sleep technicians new to the field with the opportunity to received standardized education as they begin their careers in sleep technology. In an effort to ensure that this program covers information about the essential duties and core competencies of sleep technologists at today’s sleep center, the AASM has fully revised its online self-study module program!
The 23 new modules are now available on the A-STEP website and feature several improvements from the previous program. Each 30-minute module is now formatted as an audio-visual presentation which may be viewed on-demand from your A-STEP account. Upon completion of each module, there is a post-module self-assessment exam.
Also updated is the pricing for the A-STEP self-study modules…module pricing has been reduced, and there is no longer a registration fee for the program! Additionally, individuals who wish to preview the program can view the first module, Welcome to Sleep Technology, for free. To learn more about the A-STEP self-study modules, including a listing of topics and to begin the program, visit the A-STEP website at www.aasm.org/astep.
