The Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB) was established in the United States of America in 1998, with the aim of meeting credentialing needs in the field of behaviour analysis globally. The board also aims to protect consumers by establishing, promoting and disseminating professional standards.
There are currently 4 different ABA qualifications available from the BACB. They are geared towards tutor, assistant consultant, consultant and doctoral consultant levels. They are:
- Registered Behaviour Technician (RBT)
- Board Certified Assistant Behaviour Analyst (BCaBA)
- Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA)
- Board Certified Behaviour – Doctoral (BCBA-D)
See the BACB website for details on obtaining a credential. All the above qualifications require candidates to participate in supervised practice.
Diane provides supervision for professionals working towards or maintaining board certification. This involves direct observation of candidates at work, video review, and the assessment and development of competencies in key skills, as outlined by the board.
