Mandate: The Sleep Technologist and Respiratory Therapist Education Committee recommends and develops educational content that is critical for sleep technologists and respiratory therapists working in AASM-accredited sleep facilities.
Goals for 2022/2023:
- Develop an educational track for SLEEP 2023 for sleep technologists and respiratory therapists.
- Evaluate the AASM’s current educational resources for sleep technologists and respiratory therapists and recommend educational resources to fill any gaps.
- Develop an educational resource for sleep technologists focusing on pediatrics (e.g., preparation for the BRPT Pediatric Sleep Certificate Exam).
- Develop resources to help sleep technologists prepare for their registry exams (including comparing AASM resources to the RPSGT Exam Blueprint).
