The Committee on Accreditation for Polysomnographic Technologist Education (CoA PSG) is a committee sponsored by the American Association of Sleep Technologists (AAST) and Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT). Its main function is to review applications from programs that plan to provide certificate or associate degree education for polysomnographic technologists, guide applicants during the accreditation process and formulate accreditation recommendations which are then considered by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Graduates of accredited sleep technology programs are eligible for the registry examinations.
