Sample Supervision Contracts
These sample contracts may be useful in documenting the relationship between supervisors and supervisees who are acquiring practical experience toward a BACB credential.
Recent Changes to Experience and Supervision Standards
The recent changes are described in the September 2012 BACB Newsletter (Special Edition on Supervision).
The October 2013 BACB Newsletter includes Frequently Asked Questions about these changes.
The BACB will be instituting new requirements for BCBAs and instructors in approved course sequences who supervise the applied experience of those pursuing certification, as well as BCBAs who supervise the ongoing practice of BCaBAs. The most significant of the new requirements will be the completion of a post-certification, competency-based, training program on supervision. This training needs to be completed no later than December 31, 2014. The basis of the newly required supervision training will be the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline.
All Type 2 ACE providers who hold the BCBA credential are eligible to offer supervision training based on this curriculum outline. Click here for a list of ACE Providers. Click here for a list of events offered by ACE Providers.
