Direct service providers who work with individuals with special needs may qualify for an opportunity to earn a national credential in Applied Behavior Analysis at no little to no cost. Medicaid Coverage for Autism Services is scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2018 and providers are required to have the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) credential in order to render services.
The Center for Human Development at UAA is offering free training to obtain the RBT credential. This training will meet the requirements set forth by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board to sit for the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) credential. The Behavior Analyst Certification Board has specific requirements for applicants to become Registered Behavior Technicians. Please review the information located on their website about the requirements for obtaining and maintaining the RBT credential (https://bacb.com/rbt/).
This training will consist of access to online modules and hands-on skill competency assessments. Upon successful completion of the training, participants will be able to apply for the national credential and take the exam. We currently have funding to cover the entire cost of training, applying, and travel to and from the testing sites in Anchorage and Fairbanks.
