AAST is excited to host two CCSH Designated Education Program workshops taking place in Chicago, IL in 2022. The AAST CCSH Designated Education Program is designed for health professionals who work directly with sleep medicine patients, families and other healthcare practitioners to coordinate and manage patient care and improve outcomes and to allow those with their RPSGT to become eligible to earn their CCSH.
The BRPT’s CCSH Pathway 3 is open to all active RPSGT credential holders who have recertified at least once and who have completed an AAST CCSH Designated Education Program.
These in-person workshops foster an individualized, instructor-led learning experience that will allow for robust discussion with your instructors and peers. Each participant will receive a copy of the Clinical Sleep Health Professional (CCSH) Workbook, access to Case Study Scenarios, and access to the AAST post-test.
Participants seeking the CCSH credential through Pathway #3 and complete the AAST Designated Focused Education Program will receive a certificate of eligibility to sit for the CCSH exam.

About the CCSH
The Certification in Clinical Sleep Health (CCSH), offered through the BRPT, showcases the knowledge of those who manage patient care as healthcare providers and educators. In addition to meeting specific educational/clinical requirements, individuals must hold a Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification or its equivalent, adhere to the BRPT Standards of Conduct and pass the CCSH examination.
AAST launched the CCSH Designated Education Program to allow those with their RPSGT to become eligible to earn their CCSH. Upon completion of this workshop and after receiving a passing score on the AAST post-test, RPSGT credential holders who have re-certified at least once will be eligible to apply for the CCSH credential through the BRPT.
Participants seeking the CCSH credential through Pathway #3 and complete the AAST Designated Focused Education Program will receive a certificate of eligibility to sit for the CCSH exam via Pathway #3.
Information on CCSH Credential Eligibility through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) can be found here: https://www.brpt.org/ccsh/eligibility/
- There is no time limit for completing the post-test once you begin, however, participants will only receive two attempts.
- Participants may attempt the exam twice, and must receive an overall score of 70% or higher to pass.
- Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the exam. This is the certificate that will be used to verify pathway eligibility for the CCSH credentialing examination.
