About the board
The Respiratory Therapist and Polysomnographic Technologist Licensing Board (RTPT) oversees the practices of respiratory therapists and polysomnographic technologists in the State of Oregon.
The RTPT consists of seven members appointed by the governor and subject to confirmation by the Oregon Senate:
- Three respiratory therapists
- Two polysomnographic technologists
- One qualified medical director for polysomnography or respiratory care
- One public member
Members of the board must be citizens of Oregon. Respiratory therapist and polysomnographic technologist members must have engaged in their respective practice for a period of five or more years immediately preceding appointment. The term of office of each member of the board is four years, but members serve at the pleasure of the governor. Vacancies are filled by the governor by appointment for the unexpired term. A member holds office until the appointment and qualification of a successor.
Members are eligible for reappointment. After serving two consecutive full terms, members must wait at least four years before being eligible for appointment to serve on the board.
