The Accredited Sleep Technologist Education Program (ASTEP) is an accredited program set up by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to provide standardized education for sleep trainees and technicians. It contains both ASTEP I, which consists of 80 hours of didactics, and ASTEP II, that consists of 23 teaching modules that are performed online.
Since July of 2010, both ASTEP I and ASTEP II are required prior to taking the Board of Registered Polysomnography Technologists (BRPT) exam. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is the accrediting body. OhioHealth Sleep Services is currently the only accredited program offering ASTEP in central Ohio.
Following completion of the program, one to two students may be eligible to continue as a Sleep Trainee at OhioHealth Sleep Services to gain clinical experience that includes on-site polysomnography duties performed as direct patient recording and/or scoring to gain the required clinical experience of 819 hours to become registry eligible.
