Examinations/Certificates

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 Certificate

The Certificate Examination for Polysomnographic Technicians is a certificate-level exam. The new exam will be designated the “CPSGT” exam, and a certificate holder will be a “Certified Polysomnographic Technician.” The new certificate will not be a prerequisite to sitting for the RPSGT exam, but rather is being offered as an entry-level certificate for those entering the sleep technology profession. The certificate will be time-limited and valid for three years/36 months, within which time a certificate holder must earn the RPSGT credential, or the CPSGT certificate expires.

Certification Application

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;
  3. Paid an examination authorization fee to the BRPT.

If the name/address information you originally provided BRPT is no longer accurate, you must resolve the discrepancies with the BRPT before you arrive at the test center.

Scheduling

First-time test takers must create a Pearson VUE web account. Appointments may be made up to one business day in advance.

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.

NDA Agreement

You will be required to agree to the NDA Agreement that will be presented at the beginning of your exam. Failure to read/accept the agreement within the allotted 5 minutes will result in your exam ending and a forfeit of your exam fees. Please take a moment to review the agreement now so that you are familiar with it when you sit for your exam.
