The BACB’s Registered Behavior Technician (RBT®) Task List contains the primary tasks that RBT’s are responsible for on the board and during practice. This course is designed to provide RBT’s with the tools needed to become familiar with the task list and ensure their competency as behavior technicians. Upon completion of the course, RBT’s will have learned the basis for training requirements and examination.
The Task List is organized into the following primary content areas: Measurement, Assessment, Skill Acquisition, Behavior Reduction, Documentation and Reporting, and Professional Conduct and Scope of Practice.
The length of this course is 4 weeks during which the information is divided into 4 modules. Throughout these modules, participants will meet with instructors 2 x a week via zoom for 1-hour lessons and cover all of the information in the task list. The zoom lessons will be recorded and saved in the module for playback option after the lesson has ended. Guided notes will be available for download with respect to each lesson, allowing the participant to follow along with the instructor. Each module will contain practice assignments that can be completed at your own pace and are not graded. The instructors will be available for office hours, which will be communicated via email. A final exam will be administered which is necessary to obtain the certificate of completion. This course also contains a mock exam with questions similar to those presented on the BACB certification examination but is not by any means affiliated to the BACB. At the end of the course, instructors will perform a competency assessment and supervise participant under their board for a 3-month period, with monthly supervision hours included.
