Professional Licensure Directory - Polysomnography Program

The Polysomnography Practice Act requires that all individuals must be licensed by the state in order to practice Polysomnography in the state of Tennessee. The educational requirement for licensure is graduation from a CAAHEP accredited Polysomnography Program.

Graduation from a CAAHEP accredited Polysomnography Program meets the educational requirement unless indicated below.

1 New York’s statute indicates the individual must have “appropriate education” but does not indicate specifically what education is necessary

2 North Carolina’s statute indicates the individual must be registered with the Board of Registered Polysomnograpic Technologists (BRPT). It does not specifically indicate an educational requirement, however one pathway to eligibility to sit for the BRPT exam is graduation from a CAAHEP accredited program although there are other pathways as well.

3 Virginia’s statute does not address a requirement for education in order to obtain a Polysomnography License.
