April 2020

April will be a challenge as we all continue to limit our physical presence in society and practice social distancing. With time on our side, it may be a good opportunity to catch up with school and work assignments, or to prepare for the BCBA/BCaBA or RBT exam. If you know of anyone who will be sitting for the exam, please remind them that our CBA Learning Module Series requires, on average, 80 hours of dedication to complete the program to 100%. Moreover, there is a lot of variability in the data-some people take twice the time. For this reason, and the fact that we can't predict when the testing centers will re-open, we believe that the 6-month subscription is ideal for people who are done with their classes and supervision, or will be finishing them this spring. A longer duration subscription is recommended for people who have several classes to complete. If you previously used the CBA, please check with us for a second purchase discount.

As for the RBT Exam Prep, that is available with either a 3 or 6-month subscription. For those who have already purchased and need more time, we offer a second purchase discount for this program as well.

If you are already certified, consider using the time to complete online continuing education courses. We offer both fluency and test-based courses with a wide range of credits.

Lastly, for all the avid readers, we have an online bookstore with over 200 titles. You are bound to find an old favorite or a new title of interest.

Let's continue to stay put, work together (by working apart) and hope that the pandemic will pass sooner rather than later. Wishing everyone good health!
