TeachTown’s Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) Program
Registered Behavior Technician Program
With the growing need for quality interventions and behavior services, the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) announced the newest credential, the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) in 2012. Behavior technicians are responsible for implementing, not designing, skill acquisition and behavior reduction plans and practice under the close supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA. By registering your front line staff as behavior technicians, you increase the quality of service that is provided to clients and students and guarantee that all staff members have a similar and comprehensive knowledge base.
Program Overview
TeachTown’s team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA’s) have created a 40-hour online training program that is based on the RBT Task List and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential. In this program utilizing the Canvas Learning Management System, participants will systematically advance through 12 course modules consisting of 119 interactive lessons. Within each lecture are interactive quizzes and activities, supplemental classroom videos, and additional resources that relate to the lecture topic.
