The Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT®) is a paraprofessional who practices under the ongoing supervision of a BCBA or BCaBA. The RBT is primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior-analytic interventions. RBTs are ABA technicians; however, they carry the RBT credential, which is a nationally recognized professional credential that requires more extensive training. The FranU Registered Behavior Technician™ training program is based on the RBT Task List (2nd Ed.) and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement and initial competency assessment for RBT certification. All content is housed in one fully online 2 credit hour course. The training program is offered independent of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BCAB).
