The ABSM Sleep Technologist Registry Examination was developed to reflect the day-to-day responsibilities of the sleep technologist in a sleep center setting and instruction received from available didactic programs. The ABSM was established as an independent entity in 1989 and has extensive experience in the development and administration of examinations for sleep medicine professionals. In addition to the Sleep Technologist Registry Examination, the ABSM offers certification for Behavioral Sleep professionals and international sleep medicine physicians.
