Learn the essentials to become a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). RBTs work primarily with individuals on the autism spectrum in the home, community and school settings. Working under the close supervision of a behavior analyst, an RBT is responsible for the direct implementation of skill acquisition and behavior reduction plans. Completion of Registered Behavior Technician Training I and II meets the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) 40-hour education requirement for the RBT examination. Students must register for Registered Behavior Technician Training I and II together, and courses must be taken consecutively. To be eligible to sit for the RBT exam, you must also possess a high school diploma or equivalent, be over the age of 18, pass an RBT Competency Assessment and pass a background check.
