Registration is now open for a free Polysomnography Technician course beginning June 20.

Temple College received a Texas Upskilling and Reskilling Grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The grant will enable Temple College to offer full scholarships to 30 students seeking Polysomnography Technician training.

 

The class will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays through Aug. 17 in the Nursing Education Center on the Temple College campus.

Polysomnography technicians, also known as sleep technologists, perform overnight sleep assessments used to diagnose various sleep disorders. This course will give students the knowledge and skills needed to become a sleep technologist. Topics covered include anatomy and physiology, sleep disorders, sleep medicine and polysomnographic technology.

Upon successful completion, graduates will be eligible to sit for the Certified Polysomnographic Technician (CPSGT) Certification Exam offered through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT).

There is no charge for this course, but seats are limited. Anyone interested in attending should visit Temple College’s Polysomnography Technician website to begin the application process.
