RECENT NEWS

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.
