Learners will develop a deeper understanding of ABA and the tasks likely to be performed by RBTs. Based on the same methodology as our very successful CBA Learning Module Series, the RBT 40-Hour Training course uses active responding to fluency to teach the tasks outlined in the BACB’s Registered Behavior Technician 2nd Edition Task List and the RBT Ethics Code 2.0. A brief overview of the BCBA and BCaBA credentials and how they relate to the role of the RBT and supervision are also provided.
This course is comprised of a series of module sets: an acquisition module (to learn the material at a comfortable pace) and a fluency module (which provides the practice that results in responding accurately and without hesitation). The literature indicates that achievement of a fluent performance leads to maintenance and the ability to apply skills to novel situations. Many topics throughout this course are further taught through helpful videos, graphics, and sample behavior plans.
The Fluency Instructional Model
There is a limit to the number of times that learning modules can be accessed. Although this limit is generous, please do not quit the module and forfeit the run. Each subscription provides 20 attempts to reach criterion (85% correct) and even more additional attempts for post-criterion practice!
Assessment modules allocate 1 attempt during Pre-Testing and 2 attempts during Post-Testing. Repeating the same test questions excessively can cause an increase in score despite no further concept acquisition occurring, which is why these limits are the default settings for the course.
