Program Description:

A good night’s sleep is critical to our health and wellness. But thousands of Americans suffer from sleep disorders and never receive the benefits of restorative sleep. Sleep medicine helps these people find relief, often by a visit to a sleep lab, where a sleep technologist helps diagnose a particular sleep disorder. If you are seeking a career in the health field, have a caring and compassionate attitude, have good communication and observation skills, a career as a sleep technologist may be for you. Due to the nature of the work, sleep technologists often work at night. At NECC, the Sleep Technologist Certificate will prepare you for a career in sleep medicine. Throughout the program you will be participating in classroom study, laboratory practice, and clinical experiences. Graduates of the program are qualified to take the RPSGT or Registered Polysomnography Technologist credentialing examination. This program is offered in a hybrid format, in which you take all of your coursework online and attend class for clinical instruction one Saturday a month in the state-of-the-art sleep laboratory on Northern Essex’s Lawrence Campus. You are also required to complete a clinical experience at one of several clinical sites.
