About the RBT Credential
A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a behavior intervention service provider who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA. The RBT is a national credential awarded by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (www.bacb.com).

Obtaining the RBT Credential
RBT applicants must be 18 years of age, possess a minimum of a high school diploma or national equivalent, complete 40 hours of training, complete a criminal background check, pass the RBT Competency Assessment, and pass the RBT examination.

Maintaining the RBT Credential
RBTs are required annually to pass the RBT Competency Assessment, complete a renewal, receive ongoing supervision, and comply with the BACB’s ethics requirements.

Ethics & Discipline
RBTs must have instruction and assessment in ethics and professional conduct as part of the eligibility requirements for the credential. In addition, each RBT must abide by a subset of the Compliance Code designated as relevant to the practice of behavior technicians.
