Cape May County
New Jersey is a northeastern U.S. state with some 130 miles of Atlantic coast. Jersey City, across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan, is the site of Liberty State Park, where ferries embark for nearby Ellis Island, with its historic Immigration Museum, and the iconic Statue of Liberty. The Jersey Shore includes notable resort towns like historic Asbury Park and Cape May, with its preserved Victorian buildings.
Although it has major social, economic, and political force in its own right, New Jersey is sometimes looked upon as a stepchild among the heavily industrialized and populated states along the Eastern Seaboard. New Jersey is one of the smallest states in area, but it is highly urbanized and has one of the country’s highest population densities. Hundreds of thousands of its citizens commute to New York and Pennsylvania. New Jersey’s transportation system is one of the busiest and most extensive in the world, and it weaves the state into the fabric of the region by funneling goods and people to New York City and other points north and to Philadelphia and points south. For hundreds of thousands of visitors it offers long stretches of fine beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, and the resort town of Atlantic City may be better known than the state itself.

Practice acts and respiratory therapy licensure laws contain exemption or exception sections. Be aware that different state laws may exempt different individuals, entities or services. Most licensure board websites have both the statute and regulations. It is important to know exactly what the law or regulations permit in each state. Also be aware that most licensure boards have the authority to make changes to the respiratory practice act through rules, regulations and advisory opinions, and they frequently do. To assure you have the most accurate respiratory therapist state licensure information, refer to the respiratory therapy licensure boards’ sites.

RPSGT & CCSH Credentials
All RPSGT and CCSH certification holders must recertify every five years in order to retain the use of their credential. To recertify, you must either earn 50 continuing education credits during their 5 year credential window or retake and pass the corresponding certification exam.
The BRPT strongly encourages you to apply for recertification at least 3 weeks in advance of your expiration date (but no earlier than 6 months), so that in the event that there are any issues, you will have ample time to rectify them without falling into the reinstatement window.
Recertification Application submitted on time through the BRPT portal: $150
The Certified Polysomnographic Technician (CPSGT) certificate is valid for three years and may not be renewed. Certificate holders are required to earn 10 continuing education credits that follow our Recertification Guidelines and enter them into the Self Service Portal for them to be reviewed and accepted each year of the 3 years given. Credits must be entered before each year is up.
RST’s are required to complete 50 continuing education credits within five years or to retake the RST examination. To submit proof of completion of 50 continuing education credits:
- Register an account on the ABSM website
- Follow the instructions to upload CEC certificates or credit letters. CECs documentation must be uploaded via this website. Summary documents WILL NOT be accepted.
