  • Challenged by BRPT Exam

    I mentioned before that I attended the FOCUS spring conference in Florida. My main goal for that event was to attend the sleep educator workshop presented by the BRPT. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and I did learn a lot; it was worth every penny spent.  Now, I am tasked with passing the associated exam. I ...

  • Continuing Education: Keeping Your Credentials vs. Pushing to A New Level

  • ASET Has a Plan for Sleep Techs

    I had the opportunity to attend the ASET conference recently and hear an idea they had on how to bring sleep back into their fold. Since we, as sleep techs, are concerned about the future of our profession, it might be of benefit to take a listen to their idea. There is a large need in the field of long-term monitoring. Although sleep techs ...

    It has been a whirlwind of a week again and it's going to be this way for a while. The winds have been howling with all of the usual activity that comes with being the day technologist in a busy lab. Add to that all of the conferences coming up that one must attend.

  • State Sleep Societies Are Here to Grow Our Field

    The AAST recently sponsored the State Leadership Conference in Chicago. This was designed to help the organization to learn from each other and understand important organizational information such as financial planning and publicity. The AAST was very well represented as well as the AASM. What was really amazing was the people from the 26 states ...

  • Sleep Tech Attends EEG Meeting, and Benefits

    I have been busy this year attending more conferences than ever before. I may have mentioned that previously.  I've been to FOCUS, GASP and last weekend I was in Atlanta at the ASET conference, which is actually the annual EEG meeting. I felt a little bit like a duck out of water, but my boss suggested I go, so I ...

  • Camaraderie, Information, Education!

    Professional organizations and meetings are becoming so important to us as sleep techs seeking to be recognized as professionals.  How do you decide which organization to join and which meetings to attend?  It's important to know what's happening on all fronts but realistically we can't attend or join them all.  I am a member of ...
