8-Hour Supervision Training
The basis of the required supervision training is the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline. The purpose of the training is to provide the knowledge and skills required for the effective supervision of those who deliver behavior-analytic services and those who are pursuing BACB certification. All Type 2 ACE providers who hold the BCBA credential are eligible to offer supervision training based on this curriculum outline. Verified Course Sequences may integrate this training into their coursework, as long as all of the training requirements are met. This training must be completed prior to the onset of any supervision activities.

This online module uses programmed-instruction techniques to teach the critical rules of the standards for experience to qualify for BACB certification. The module can be completed in under 90 minutes and is available free of charge via the Training tab in the BACB Gateway. This training must be completed prior to the onset of any supervision activities.
Supervision Continuing Education
BCaBAs, BCBAs and BCBA-Ds who wish to provide supervision of individuals pursuing BACB certification or the ongoing practice of BCaBAs or RBTs will be required to obtain specific training in order to do so. These individuals will also be required to obtain 3 CEUs on supervision in every certification cycle. Acceptable supervision content is behavior-analytic in nature and covers effective supervision as defined in the BACB’s Experience Standards (in particular, the “Nature of Supervision” section) and the Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline.
