Accreditations/Awards


The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) accreditation is the gold standard by which the medical community and the public can evaluate sleep medicine services. The Standards for Accreditation ensure that sleep medicine providers display and maintain proficiency in areas such as testing procedures and policies, patient safety and follow-up, and physician and staff training.

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine developed the A-STEP program. A-STEP stands for Accredited Sleep Technology Education Program. PDS was one of the first 25 providers in the country to receive A-STEP accreditation of its educational program. This accreditation demonstrates PDS’ commitment to the promotion of the standardization of sleep technologist education and provision of educational services which meet the standards of the national accrediting body.

The North Dakota Center for Sleep is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

  • American Academy of Sleep Medicine
  • National Sleep Foundation
