Temporary Allowances for Experience/Fieldwork and Competency Assessments

Due to social distancing requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, the BACB will allow temporary deviations for certain “with a client” requirements. As of March 1, the “observation with a client” sub-requirement that applies to Experience and Fieldwork will be temporarily waived for those without access to clients. In addition, all RBT competency assessments received as of April 28, 2020 will allow “with a client” tasks to be fulfilled via “role play.” For more information about how to qualify for these temporary exemptions, visit our COVID-19 Updates page and continue to monitor BACB correspondence.
