Polysomnographic Technologist


The NC General Assembly enacted NCGS 90-677, the Polysomnography Practice Act, on October 1, 2009. The statute requires the NC Medical Board to establish a registry of sleep techs. The Polysomnography Practice Act makes it unlawful, beginning January 1, 2012, for any unregistered sleep tech to practice polysomnography, represent themselves as someone credentialed to practice polysomnography or use the title “Registered Polysomnographic Technologist.”

Registrants must provide:

  1. Their full legal name
  2. Their complete address and current telephone number
  3. Evidence that they are currently credentialed in good standing by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT).

The Medical Board will verify the sleep tech’s credentials with the BRPT. If the NCMB is unable to verify that a registrant is currently credentialed by the BRPT, the sleep tech may be required to provide a copy of his or her certificate. 

For more information, see the Board’s Polysomnographic Technologist FAQs
