The Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) reports that applications for the RPSGT credential for the first quarter of 2007 soared and the number of RPSGTs now exceeds 10,000.

Last year, the BRPT instituted several changes to its RPSGT credentialing process, including a requirement for continuing education credits for RPSGTs to maintain their credential. For those who worried that these changes might make the credential less attractive to technologists, the first quarter numbers will come as a relief.

The deadline for the next RPSGT exam is May 18 at 5 pm ET (for the June 18-30 testing window). To download a copy of the 2007 BRPT Candidate Handbook, visit the [removed]BRPT’s Web site[/removed].
