Updated services for RBTs

We are pleased to announce a few improvements for our Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) certificants.

  • Improvements to the RBT Renewal Application — We have an updated RBT Renewal Packet which includes an RBT renewal checklist, competency assessment, and renewal application. In addition, we have launched a renewal feature in the RBT’s BACB Gateway Account where RBTs will submit and pay for their renewal application and view the status of their renewal. As a result, we will no longer accept emailed RBT renewal applications after December 18, 2017.
  • Streamlined Communication — To create one location for all BACB email correspondence, the RBT@bacb.com and RBTrenewals@bacb.com email addresses will be discontinued and all RBT email correspondence will go through the Contact Us form (e.g., RBT questions, Responsible Certificant (RC) changes). This change will be effective December 18, 2017.

Examination Results & Call Volume

August examination results were released and are available in BACB Gateway accounts. Please keep in mind that it takes some time for everything to process.

In the meantime, we are experiencing high call volumes and wait times, as well as large amounts of website traffic. We appreciate your patience during this time and will respond to everyone as quickly as possible.
