What is the Task of an RBT?

UPDATED: August 26, 2020

Do you want to become the school-based RBT or Registered Behavior Technician? If you are totally new to this field, you must have one goal of becoming a professional at whatever you do. Mastering your role and duties means much more than doing your tasks listed in the TherapyTravelers RBT Jobs description. This means knowing how the Applied Behavior Analysis principles inform your work and you play an important role in helping the kids to change their behaviors & improve their lives. To become the top RBT professional, it does not have to be the isolating process.

ABA and Registered Behavior Technician

The Registered Behavior Technician is an important credentialed paraprofessional that works with the people getting Applied Behavior Analysis therapy and implements their intervention programs.

Being a registered RBT, you will not be assessing and designing these plans. But, you will be working in close and ongoing supervision from the BCBA to carry it out.

The professional hierarchy reflects various levels of training and education. In order, to become an RBT expert, you need to have the high school diploma, training & certification. And BCaBA needs the undergraduate-level certification. The BCBA-D has got doctoral training and supervision ensures that client (in the school settings, student) gets best quality of care. However, like analysts supervising you, you have to understand the key concepts of ABA.

Requirements for the RBT Certification

Being certified as a RBT, you should:

  • Have the high school diploma
  • Be 18 years old
  • Undergo the background check in 180 days when submitting the completed RBT Certification
  • Complete your requisite 40hours of training, and overseen by BCBA, BCaBA, and BCBA-D
  • Complete & pass your RBT exam that includes 75 MCQ and assesses applicant’s knowledge of an RBT Task List
  • Abide by RBT Ethics Code
