Registered Behavior Training Online Course

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). For more information on becoming an RBT please visit the BACB website.

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 on going 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.

Content Areas:

  1. Measurement
  2. Assessment
  3. Skill Acquisition
  4. Behavior Reduction
  5. Documentation and Reporting
  6. 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.  

Course Format

Online Learning + Adobe Connect. A limited number of the books that are required for the online course are available in each regional ASD library. All content must be completed within 180 days.
