The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) is an independent, nonprofit certification board that seeks to cultivate the highest professional and ethical standards for polysomnographic technologists by providing an internationally recognized credential. The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists sets the professional standard worldwide for the credentialing of technologists in the field of sleep medicine.


RPSGT Examination

The Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) Examination assesses the professional competence of practitioners performing polysomnography and associated therapeutic interventions. The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists™ (BRPT) credentialing program is accredited by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

CPSGT Examination

The Certified Polysomnographic Technician (CPSGT) is an entry-level certification earned by individuals new to the sleep field. The CPSGT certificate is valid for three years and cannot be renewed. Within that three-year window, CPSGTs are expected to earn the RPSGT credential.

Before scheduling an examination appointment, you must have already:

  1. Approved application from the BRPT;
  2. Been notified of your eligibility to sit for the examination and received your Candidate Status Report;

When creating your account and scheduling your test, you will need your Candidate ID number and exam name from the Candidate Status Report. Testing times and locations are available on “first come, first served” basis.

After you schedule your test, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation letter listing your test date, your testing time, the address and phone number of the test center, and directions to the test center.
