Presentation given by Anglee Leviner at the 2012 Carolina Sleep Society Fall Meeting.
Page 26 note:
"I have heard countless times the point driven home that the RST isn’t ‘real’ or isn’t ‘legitimate’ or other similar phrasings because it’s not NCCA accredited. I’m going to go ahead and remind you guys that the BRPT exam gained NCCA accreditation in 2002, and many, many technologists were credentialed by the BRPT 2 years prior to that and the years they were still within the APT, and to continue insisting the passing of an unaccredited examination is somehow less or unacceptable is to say that a large number of very qualified and experienced sleep professionals have an RPSGT credential that is somehow less than everyone credentialed after 2002. As the time table it took the BRPT to gain NCCA accreditation hasn’t passed yet, it’s only fair to give the ABSM an equal amount of time to accomplish this task."
