The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) is now accepting applications for its Certification in Clinical Sleep Health (CCSH) Educational Grants to provide assistance to registered polysomnographic technologists who are interested in pursuing the CCSH credential through Pathway 3.

The grants are intended for registered polysomnographic technologists who are unable to apply through CCSH Pathways 1 or 2 and/or are unable to financially pursue the CCSH-designated education program(s) approved for Pathway 3 of the CCSH credential.

Each CCSH Educational Grant will cover up to $250 of the registration cost for an approved in-person conference or the cost to complete online modules for any approved CCSH educational program, such as the American Association of Sleep Technologists CCSH Designated STAR Education Program, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine A-STEP CCSH Education Program, the Academy of Sleep and Wellness Program, the Collin College Continuing Education Health Sciences Program, and the Academy of Sleep Wake Science CCSH Exam Preparatory Course.  

Any additional costs above $250 will be the responsibility of the grant recipient. The BRPT will select 10 grant recipients, each of whom will have up to three months to start the educational modules or register for the conference.

Applicants must be active registered polysomnographic technologist credential holders who have recertified at least once. In addition, applicants must hold current BLS/CPR certification for healthcare workers that follow the most recent AHA guidelines or international equivalent.

The deadline for applications is Friday, March 31.
