As a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT®), you can seek professional opportunities in a variety of growing industries not limited to psychiatric technicians and aids, behavioral disorders and mental health, and education. This RBT training course includes Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and provides you with the required 40-hour training needed prior to scheduling an Initial Competency Assessment with your supervisor. Within the course you have access to a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA®) who will provide feedback on in-course assignments designed to specifically prepare you for the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT certification through Behavioral Analyst Certification Board (BACB®).
With the support of a BCBA instructor, you will learn the steps required to administer behavioral intervention plans, record and prepare data for the behavior analyst, and follow ethical decision-making and protocol, as described by the board. You will learn the common functions of behavior, how to use motivators and reinforcers, conduct preference assessments, protocols for crisis prevention, and reduce or increase target behaviors by following a behavior intervention plan.
This RBT course includes a voucher that can be used for the BACB RBT certification exam only when all BACB RBT application requirements are met. This course does not include any application fees, background checks, or completion of the initial competency assessment. As of 1/1/24, BACB requires that all initial competency assessments should be completed by employer. Please ensure that you are familiar with BACB policies and application requirements when pursuing a career as a certified Registered Behavior Technician.
