Our program is unique in that it not only covers task list items outlined by the board, but also includes other important topics RBTs will encounter while working in the field of behavior analysis.
To accommodate for the different levels of experience and background in the field, we offer three different placement levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. A placement determination will be made after a thorough review of the Application and Placement Test results.
