We are pleased to announce the results of our recent Board of Directors election: Eric Vici, BCaBA, and Julie Koudys, BCBA-D, were each elected to serve a three-year term on the board. We offer our congratulations to the elected directors and our gratitude to all of the candidates for running. We also extend our thanks to the certificants who participated in this important election.
When in-person testing was restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BACB sought approval from its accrediting body to participate in an exception program that offered flexibility for RBT candidates by permitting remote testing, with the understanding that additional data collection and security measures would be required. Remote testing became available for the RBT certification program on April 15, 2020.
On March 1, 2021, in response to typical examination-security concerns associated with remote testing, the BACB will begin restricting remote testing in select geographic regions as needed. If remote testing does not appear as an option at the time of examination-appointment scheduling, it is due to these restrictions, and in-person testing will still be available.
To learn more about the RBT remote testing restrictions, please visit our BACB COVID-19 Updates web page.
