Announcement for all CBA Learning Module Series Subscription holders:
Because the BACB will no longer test on Task List 4 (TL4) after 12/31/2021, the CBA Learning Module Series TL4 will not be sold after 12/1/2021.
It is recommended that subscribers taking the BCBA exam after 12/31/2021 upgrade to the CBA Learning Module Series TL5 at no charge for the remainder of their subscription.
How to Upgrade:
To upgrade, please visit behaviordevelopmentsolutions.com and login with your username and password. Search “crossgrade” in the store search field and proceed.
Due to differences in the two courses, it is impossible for TL4 data to be transferred to TL5, so you will start TL5 from scratch. However, you will still have access to your TL4 data, should you choose to review it.

One of the most anticipated climate conferences will take place during the first two weeks of November. The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) will bring together policymakers, practitioners, and citizens to accelerate action on climate change. This year’s conference is particularly important. COP26 attempts to solidify the commitments needed to achieve urgent and immediate action, as described in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) most recent report.
How did we get here?
Much of COP26’s agenda follows commitments made during a previous conference (COP21 in 2015), from which the Paris Agreement emerged. The Paris Agreement was lauded as a landmark victory by climate advocates. 196 countries made public commitments to collectively limit warming to 1.5°C by the end of the century. This goal would be accomplished by signatory nations drastically reducing their emissions and creating solutions to adapt to the burgeoning effects of climate change. The voluntary commitments comprise each country’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), subject to updates on a five-year cycle.
Although the Paris Agreement was designed to promote change, two recent UN reports note that we are off-track to meet its primary goal, as countries' current NDCs are inadequate to meet the Paris Agreement's target. While countries have begun to submit updated NDCs in advance of COP26, many countries have not yet complied, and some have even submitted NDCs that are less ambitious than their original plans. We’re currently moving in the wrong direction. To move forward, we must collectively change our behavior to achieve systemic societal change.
