Faculty have the opportunity to enhance their classroom methods during two professional development days during the academic year, which include learning sessions like “Digital Accessibility”, “Basic Skills: Helping students help themselves” and “Taking a skills-based approach to teaching college students”.

Graduates of this program are eligible to sit for the Registered Polysomnography Technologists (RPSGT) examination offered through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT), the Certificate of Clinical Sleep Health (CCSH), and the Pediatric Sleep Certificate.
