How do I become a RBT®?
The first step is completing the 40 hour training. This is what I am providing you.
The second step is completing the competency exam. I outline the steps you should take to find someone to complete your competency exam.
The next step is securing a supervisor. 5% of RBTs working hours need to be supervised. Typically the person who completes your competency exam will become your supervisor, or another BCBA or BCaBA in the company you are working for. But you need to identify the supervisor as part of your application for the exam. You cannot work as a RBT unless you are supervised.
Next you will complete the online RBT certification application. You will turn in the certificate of completion I provide you after completing the course and your competency exam, as well as other documentation. The BACB website explains this process.
Next the BACB will ask your supervision to confirm your age and that you have completed a background check.
Next you will pay the fees associated with the certification.
If the BACB accepts your application you will be able to register to take the RBT exam at a Pearson center.
Once you pass the exam you can register as a RBT.
