Behavior Analysis Essentials: A 40-Hour RBT® Training

Online RBT Training

Información de RBT en español

The Registered Behavior Technician® (RBT®) is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA, BCaBA or FL-CBA. The RBT is primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior-analytic services. RBTs shares the same role as ABA technicians; however, they carry the RBT credential, which is a nationally recognized professional credential that requires more extensive training.

Benefits to becoming a Registered Behavior Technician include:

  • Greater job satisfaction enriching the lives of those who need your help
  • Opportunity to advance your career without having to earn a college degree
