MOESC To Hold Registered Behavior Technician Training & Certification
Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center, in collaboration with Mansfield City Schools, will be holding a 6-week training and certification for Registered Behavior Technicians, starting June 7th. Ang Fetter and Dr. Dahni Reynolds, BCBA, from Mansfield City Schools will be facilitating the training.
Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is one of the credentials extended by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board to paraprofessionals who execute interventions for promoting socially acceptable behaviors. RBTs are taught the basics of applied behavior analysis to support developmentally disabled individuals, but they must function under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). An RBT can also conduct Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA) and assist with Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) processes (relative to behavior).
Participants will complete 40-hours self-paced online training. They will also take part in one-hour virtual study group weekly for 6-weeks. They must complete a competency assessment, and a four-hour RBT Exam Practice Test before taking the RBT Board Exam. For an extra $35, participants can get credentialed through the Behavior Analysis Certification Board.
Interested people must be at least 18 years of age, pass a background check (paid for by the participant), and have a high school diploma. Registration is limited to 20 participants and ends on April 15th. The cost for individuals from client districts is $500 for the course and $600 for those from non-client districts. Registration is available at www.moesc.net/register. Anyone with questions about the program should contact Jennifer Crum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
