Accreditation

The LBCC Sleep Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Programs (CAAHEP) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation for Sleep Technologist Education (CoA PSG).

Experience

The clinical portion of this program takes place during spring term.  Students must maintain a C average or better in all of their classes to remain eligible for the clinical practicum.  LBCC partners with clinical sites throughout Oregon in order to give students the best experience possible.

This experience is an excellent way for students to begin networking in the Polysomnography community.
