Overview

Registered Behavior Technicians (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. RBTs provide interventions that encourage socially acceptable behaviors, and build and improve upon communication, social interaction and problem solving skills. Hours may span days, evenings and weekends. 

Occupational Requirements

Completion of Registered Behavior Technician Training I and II meets the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) 40-hour education requirement for the RBT examination. 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.
