What is an RBT?

You hear the word RBT mentioned a lot, but what is it?

Simple answer is it is an entry level position that requires direct supervision in the behavior analysis field.

According to the BACB website

The Registered Behavior TechnicianTM (RBT®) is a paraprofessional certification in behavior analysis. RBTs assist in delivering behavior analysis services and practice under the direction and close supervision of an RBT Supervisor and/or an RBT Requirements Coordinator, who are responsible for all work RBTs perform.


RBT must renew their certification annually by their RBT expiration date

Check out the BACB website for more details, they talk about how to become an RBT, training supervision requirements, ethics standards, and so much more that any one seeking behavior analysis services should be aware of.
