To be consistent with NCCA accreditation requirements, the BACB must ensure that all applicants for certification meet equivalent eligibility standards. Because standards vary between countries, it is necessary to establish a single benchmark for this purpose. The majority of applicants for BACB certification have been United States (US) residents; thus, subject matter experts have recommended that US university accreditation serve as the higher education benchmark at this time.
