This 40+ hour training is a free, self-directed, online training which fulfills the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s (BACB) eligibility training requirements toward attaining a Registered Behavior TechnicianTM (RBTTM) credential. An RBT is a paraprofessional, teacher or practitioner who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA).
In Nebraska, we recommend this course to those who are interested in earning professional development credits on content in the areas listed below. To work as an RBT you have to be under the supervision of a BCBA, therefore we do not recommend completing the RBT certification, unless you are currently working with a BCBA. Working with a BCBA is NOT a requirement to take the course for professional development CEUs.
- Skill Acquisition
- Behavior Reduction
- Documentation and Reporting
- Professional conduct and Scope of Practice
Participants can include: special education teacher, para educators, parents, school psychologists, social workers, counselors, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, school intervention team members, direct-care staff working in schools, homes or clinical settings, etc.
