ABA stands for: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA started in the 1960s with Skinner. It is based on the science of learning and behavior. Behavior Analysis helps us to understand how behavior works, how behavior is affected by the environment, and how learning takes place.

The goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning. ABA can help:

  • Increase language and communication skills
  • Improve attention, academic skills, play skills, social skills, memory, executive functioning skills 
  • Decrease problem behaviors (tantrums, not listening, aggressive behaviors, addictive behaviors)

This is a 40-hour training that will prepare the learner to take the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) Competency Assessment exam. This RBT training is based on the RBT Task List 2nd edition and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential. This program is offered independent of the BACB.

The Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT) is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA, BCBA-D 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 a RBT may perform as a function of his or her training, experience, and competence.

The RBT training is for educators, parents and other professionals who would like to learn evidence-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles and strategies for helping clients, and family members with developmental challenges, various disorders and/or behavior challenges. In addition, ABA can be used in management processes as well.

This is a 40-hour training program that covers the RBT Task list (2nd edition), the relevant ethical code elements and an overview of the BCBA, BCaBA and RBT roles Learn More

The credential requirements are established by the BACB. The applicant must:

  • Be 18 years and older
  • Have a high school diploma or equivalent prior to beginning the training
  • Complete the 40-hour training covering the RBT Task list (the training must be completed within 180 days from when the participant chooses to begin)
  • Competency assessment: Applicants must pass a behavior-based competency assessment administered by a qualified supervisor
  • Background check: Applicants must pass a criminal background check.

You must repurchase the course and restart from the beginning, as the BACB requires that the training be completed within 180 days. Students will not be allowed to complete only the work they failed to complete the first time they took the course.

This course is a 40-hour online course and includes 83 modules. All modules contain Power Point Slides (written in English), with an audio in the language of your choice. The modules contain quizzes so your knowledge is constantly checked. We used real life videos, recorded in families’ homes and in the community. This makes our ABA coursework an excellent opportunity to learn about ABA in real life experiences.

The RBT training covers a variety of topics that are necessary for an individual to pursue a career as a Registered Behavior Technician, working directly with individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities.

After receiving your 40-hour course completion certificate, you are required to find and work in conjunction with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).  The assessment is complete when the Behavior Technician demonstrates competency in each task as determined by the supervising BCBA.

A registry of Board Certified Behavior Analysts is available through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board website.
