Oregon Tech Online offers both certificate and associate degree program options in polysomnographic technology as of 2015, and they are designed both for newcomers to the field and those who want to advance their careers. Both programs also help students qualify to take the Registered Polysomnographic Technologist exam; however, students in some states need to already be certified to participate. In addition to taking classes online, students go to a local sleep lab for hands-on training. Graduates can choose to pursue further education through the school's health care management bachelor's program or its Clinical Sleep Health program.
Genesee Community College's associate degree program in polysomnographic technology prepares graduates to diagnose sleep disorders and work in a sleep clinic. Some of the coursework covers psychology, sleep study instruments, human anatomy, sleep medicine and environmental chemistry.
Central Georgia Technical College's diploma program in polysomnographic technology features core and occupational coursework along with overnight clinical rotations at local sleep centers and labs. This program is designed for students who do not work full time and can adhere to the overnight schedule required.Learn more about Colleges & Universities
