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 for the RBT BACB certification exam but does not include the application fee. This course does not include the initial competency assessment, which the BACB requires to be completed by the employer starting 1/1/24. The voucher covers the fee to sit for the certifying exam only when all BACB application requirements are met.
