Registered Behavior Technician

Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) course is a 5 week online synchronous training that prepares participants to meet all criteria to be eligible to become a nationally recognized RBT, a paraprofessional certified in behavior analysis. RBTs assist in delivering behavior-analytic services and practice under the direction and close supervision of an RBT Supervisor and/or an RBT Requirements Coordinator, who are responsible for all work RBTs perform.

RBT certification was originally designed for settings in which a BCBA or BCaBA is already providing behavior-analytic services. Thus, applying to become an RBT is most likely to occur after the applicant has been employed by the organization in which they will continue their work assisting qualified BCBAs and/or BCaBAs in their service-delivery activities. This course includes a job shadowing experience during the last two weeks.

Prequisites

Interview to confirm career goals and job shadowing availability.
