The BCaBA examination application is completed online (there are no longer paper: applications, renewals, or recertifications) through the applicant’s BACB Account. After completing an online application, additional required documents must be mailed to the BACB in one complete packet. Applicants may pay the application fee online or choose to mail a check with their supplemental documents. Once an application is approved, we will send an authorization to the test delivery company, Pearson VUE, allowing the applicant to schedule an appointment to take the examination.
Supplemental Documents Mailed to BACB
1. Official, original-source verification of an acceptable degree (e.g., official transcripts).
2. Official, original-source verification of acceptable coursework (e.g., official transcripts if completed separate from acceptable degree; if coursework is not from a verified course sequence please submit a coursework evaluation)
3. Experience verification form(s) with supervisor’s original signature.
|Retake (within 2 year period after initial BACB approval)||$120|
|Examination Appointment (paid to Pearson VUE)||$125|

Applicants may retake the examination within two years of their initial approval and only after examination results have been released. The application is completed online through the applicant’s BACB Account. Email approval will be sent within 24 hours of completing the application and payment.
Note: BACB fees are nonrefundable
When you provide a check as payment, you authorize us either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction.]
