Program Description:

The Registered Behavior TechnicianTM (RBT®) is a paraprofessional who is on the frontline of delivering services under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA® or BCaBA®.
 
The RBT is primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior-analytic services. The RBT does not design intervention or assessment plans. It is the responsibility of the RBT supervisor to determine which tasks an RBT may perform as a function of his or her training, experience, and competence. The BACB® certificant supervising the RBT is responsible for the work performed by the RBT on the cases they are overseeing.  A Registered Behavior TechnicianTM (RBT®) is expected to understand and implement individual treatment plans, record patient behavior and provide a safe, supportive environment for the clients.
 
This course teaches evidence-based behavior intervention techniques and strategies for individuals including but not limited to: data measurement, assessment, skill acquisition, behavior reduction, documentation and reporting, professional conduct and scope of practice. The training will cover all of the tasks and subtasks in the RBT® task list and the ethics requirements that have been designated as being relevant for behavior technicians. This training course is based on the Registered Behavior Technician Task List https://www.bacb.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/161019-RBT-task-list-english.pdf and designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT® credential. The program is offered independent of the BACB®.
