The New Mexico Medical Board recently finalized the regulatory language addressing licensure requirements for sleep technologists. The Board’s regulations provide further detail on the educational and training requirements contained in the New Mexico Polysomnography Practice Act. The Act was signed into law by Gov. Richardson in February 2008.

Members can review the newly implemented regulations on the New Mexico Medical Board Web site and by the middle of February 2010 will be able to download application forms from the site. Please note that sleep technologists in New Mexico will be required to obtain a license by July 1, 2010.
