International Certification

The Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) verifies course sequences of educational institutions. Florida Tech’s Behavior Analyst Graduate Certificate, Assistant Behavior Analyst Graduate Certificate, and behavior analysis master's degree programs contain ABAI-verified course sequences (VCS). 

As international certification processes evolve, countries worldwide will likely create criterion-based credentialing processes for individuals interested in providing behavior-analytic services. International credentialing bodies will likely refer to and use BACB and ABAI criteria to approve educational programs or something similar (i.e., Verified Course Sequences). However, it is essential for those seeking international certification to research and understand your country's specific educational and experiential criteria requirements.
