Atlanta School International Student Now a Registered Sleep Technologist
The Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine is proud to congratulate international student Ahmed Al-Harmali for passing the BRPT Registry Exam.
From Muscat, Oman, Al-Harmali travelled to the United States in April to work toward the registry exam with the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine. While in Atlanta, Ahmed completed several Atlanta School courses including A-STEP: Essentials of Sleep Technology, Scoring Adult Sleep Studies, Scoring Pediatric Sleep Studies, and Online Sleep Technologist Exam Prep. After two months of hard work and preparation, Al-Harmali returned to Muscat yesterday as a registered sleep technologist.
Ahmed believes the coursework and study materials assisted in his passing score on the BRPT Registry Exam. “I could not have done it without the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine,” said Al-Harmali, “the study materials and guidance from the staff and faculty really made the difference for me.”
In addition to coursework, Al-Harmali was also able to observe sleep technologists at work at a variety of different sleep labs throughout Atlanta. Ahmed also attended the 3rd Annual Georgia Association of Sleep Professionals meeting. While at the meeting, Ahmed connected with vendors who manufacture many of the machines Ahmed uses at his own sleep lab at the Sultan Qaboos University Hospital in Oman.
Al-Harmali’s trip also included time for fun, and Atlanta School staff accompanied Al-Harmali on a variety of sightseeing trips throughout Atlanta. Al-Harmali’s favorite thing about Atlanta? The weather! Used to scorching temperatures up to 115 degrees, Al-Harmali enjoyed the cool breezes accompanying the Atlanta springtime.
