What Doctors Are Saying

“I can't believe how many OSA patients I have NOT diagnosed because "I didn't know what to look for".  The information in the course will let me help a lot of people that would have been otherwise overlooked.  It could help me improve the quality of life in my own family.”

-Dr. DL

“I came to this course without any sleep training or experience, and am leaving feeling comfortable with a solid basic sleep therapy skillset. The course was well-organized, up-to-date, and thorough. Dr. Smith was entertaniing, the ancillary staff & vendors were friendly & knowledgeable, and accommodations were outstanding. Highly recommend!”
