We received the following good news from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board:

We are pleased to announce that the BACB has received accreditation of its Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT) credential by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
NCCA is the accreditation body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence and its accreditation helps demonstrate that a credential has met the rigorous standards established by the credentialing industry. The BACB’s Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) credentials have been NCCA accredited since 2007.

The RBT is the first behavior technician credential to become accredited based upon NCCA’s current heightened standards, which were enacted in 2016. This development means that the BACB is now the only organization in behavior analysis to offer professional credentials at every educational level (graduate, undergraduate, high school), all of which are accredited by NCCA.

In almost 20 years of operation, the BACB has credentialed over 53,000 individuals worldwide: approximately 28,000 RBTs and 25,000 BCBAs and BCaBAs.
