When you complete the ABAlink 40-hour online course, it’s essential to clarify that whilst you have gained knowledge and potentially skills related to the role of a Registered Behaviour Technician (RBT), you are not officially recognized as an RBT until you fulfill all the requirements set forth by the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

Certification Process: Becoming an RBT involves more than just completing a course. It requires meeting specific criteria set by the BACB, including education, training, and passing an examination.

Educational Requirements: The BACB mandates that individuals seeking RBT certification must have a minimum of a high school diploma or equivalent. Additionally, they need to complete specific coursework in behaviour analysis.

Supervised Experience: Simply completing a course doesn’t provide the hands-on experience necessary to become proficient in implementing behaviour-analytic interventions. RBT candidates must accrue a certain number of supervised fieldwork hours.

Passing the RBT Exam: After meeting the educational and experience requirements, individuals must pass the RBT examination administered by the BACB. This exam assesses their knowledge and understanding of behaviour analysis principles and their application.

Ethical Standards: RBTs are required to adhere to a professional and ethical code of conduct set by the BACB. This includes maintaining client confidentiality, respecting client autonomy, and practicing within their scope of competence.

Certification Renewal: Once certified, RBTs must engage in ongoing professional development and renew their certification annually to ensure they stay updated with best practices and advancements in the field.

We hope that by explaining these points, you understand that the ABAlink 40-hour online course is the starting point and pathway to becoming an RBT, however it does allow you to work as a behaviour therapist delivering therapy under the supervision of a BCBA , for more information please review the link or contact our office.
