40 Hour Credential Training for Behavior Technicians

Start your training now with RBT Readiness and meet the BACB’s requirements.

Based on the RBT 2nd, Edition Task List!

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)


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.

  • Under 40-hours? Not a problem. Use the Mock Exam Post-Tests scores to identify weak areas and then retake modules for additional practice.
  • Over 40-hours? Not a problem. You may utilize the course for as many hours as you need to feel confident in passing the exam.

This manual is designed to be used in tandem with a BCBA supervisor toward the 40-hour training requirement for the certification. It can also be used as a study guide for those who have completed their training and are preparing for their certification exam.

Evaluating Three Methods of Stimulus Rotation when Teaching Receptive Labels | BDS Journal Club Series #1
By Nicole Bank, MS, BCBA

Receptive label programming is an essential part of verbal behavior development for children with ASD. It can also be one of the most challenging skills to teach. This contemporary article examines the efficacy of three different methods of stimulus rotation when teaching receptive labels. This journal club opportunity requires reading the article and then discussing the topic with colleagues giving practitioners a better understanding of the article and a chance to identify various implications for practice.

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.
