40 Hour Credential Training for Behavior Technicians

Based on the RBT 2nd, Edition Task List!

TRIED & TRUE INSTRUCTIONAL METHODOLOGY


BDS has been successfully teaching concepts since 1998. Our tried-and-true instructional model is based on sound empirical science, incorporating features such as:

  • active student responding (ASR)
  • lots of practice
  • immediate corrective feedback
  • primarily active instructional modality
  • self-paced learning
  • practice to fluency (mastery)
THE BDS DIFFERENCE – A STEP ABOVE

Although the BACB requires that training for all RBT candidates be based on a pre-determined amount of time (40 hours), we know that all learners will acquire concepts at different paces and will enter the training with disparate levels of base knowledge.

Our 40-hour minimum training allows all learners to engage at their own pace and to complete the course to their satisfaction and competency.

Supervising the Conduct & Writing of FBAs
By Dr. Ennio Cipani

Suited for BCBAs and BCaBAs who have already completed an 8-hour supervisory training course, as well as those who supervise personnel who serve clients in schools and in-home programs, particularly BCaBA’s, RBTs, instructional aides, and those supervisees collecting the required clock hours of supervision to partially qualify for the BCBA written exam. This 4-hour CE workshop will present a function-based operant behavior classification system as the means for training supervisees to conduct and write a FBA. The Cipani Behavioral Classification System will be delineated as a model for teaching trainees.
