Program Overview

Program Overview

Polysomnographic technicians (PSTs, also known as “sleep technicians”) perform the diagnostic tests necessary to help understand why patients have trouble sleeping. By recording patient brain and breathing activity overnight, PSTs gather the data doctors need to treat patients and help them improve their quality of rest.

If you like to work nights and aren’t intimidated by machines, a career as a PST could be perfect for you. At Concorde Portland, you can earn a PST diploma in as few as eight months.*
