Effective January 1, 2022, a new and improved set of requirements go into effect for the Registered Behavior Technician® (RBT®) training course. Due to the explosive growth in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) is continually evaluating and adjusting the requirements for the credentials they offer to align with ABA principles and best practices. In our opinion, the new enhancements to the RBT® curriculum make a great deal of sense for persons seeking to practice in the field. Being less prescriptive in nature, the enhancements to the Ethics & Supervision & Supervisor Requirements sections align with a more common-sense approach to how the practice of ABA occur in a real-world environment.


In addition to the enhancements to Ethics, we are excited to also offer new course content that address the changes between the former standards and the new requirements for the RBT Supervision & Supervisor Requirements module. The revised coursework is presented by renowned Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) James O’Brien, including an extensive revision to the sections of the RBT Practice Exam modules. We hope these will assist you in taking and passing the RBT exam when you complete the other requirements of the credentialing process.

We wish you all a great New Year and can think of no better way to start the journey towards your RBT® credentialing than this new course sequence. We look forward to meeting you on the road towards using the science of human behavior called Applied Behavior Analysis to improve the quality of life of those whom we serve.
