2023 BACB Board of Directors Election Results

We are pleased to announce the results of our recent Board of Directors election: Sarah Richling, BCBA-D, was elected to serve a three-year term on the Board. We offer our congratulations to Dr. Richling and extend our gratitude to the candidates for running. Thank you to all of the certificants who participated in this important election.

We also wish to congratulate and thank Adel Najdowski, BCBA-D, and Florence DiGennaro Reed, BCBA-D, who were both appointed by the Board to serve a second term.

Now Available: 2021 BCBA and BCaBA Examination Pass Rates for Verified Course Sequences

The BACB has compiled 2021 pass rates for first-time BCBA and BCaBA examination candidates in university training programs with ABAI Verified Course Sequences. The data are sorted alphabetically by university, by the percentage of passing candidates, and by the volume of candidates from a given program.

2026 BCBA and BCaBA Certification Requirements Pushed to 2027

Based on feedback from university faculty, we have decided to push back the implementation of the 2026 BCBA and BCaBA certification requirements until 2027 to give universities more time to prepare for the changes. Please note that the rolling 10-year limit on BCBA and BCaBA coursework will still take effect in 2024, and the new BCBA and BCaBA examinations will still be implemented as planned in 2025. See the updated March 2022 BACB Newsletter for details.
