For those who have completed all requirements (QUB covers 40 hour training only), the BACB has received accreditation of its Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) credential by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). NCCA is the accreditation body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence and its accreditation helps demonstrate that a credential has met the rigorous standards established by the credentialing industry. The BACB’s Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) credentials have been NCCA accredited since 2007. The RBT is the first behavior technician credential to become accredited based upon NCCA’s current heightened standards, which were enacted in 2016. This development means that the BACB is now the only organization in behavior analysis to offer professional credentials at every educational level (graduate, undergraduate, high school), all of which are accredited by NCCA. In almost 20 years of operation, the BACB has credentialed over 53,000 individuals worldwide: approximately 28,000 RBTs and 25,000 BCBAs and BCaBAs.
At QUB we offer RBT training as well as the Approved course sequence that is part of BCBA training. We also offer doctoral level training, in adherence with BCBA-D requirements.
Our associate organisation PEAT NI - Parents Education as Autism Therapists offers pre-registration RBT competency assessment (www.peatni.org)

"Fantastic course. Fascinating. Can't wait to start
ABA with my child. As an autism parent I left all
study to the last minute and annoyed myself for
not making more time, but I'm glad I still have
access to the Simple Steps materials and will
review them lots more before we begin ABA at
"I appreciated the general overview and scope of
the course, but particularly that there were
additional resources provided and suggested for
further study and detailed knowledge. A great
starting point all together. Thank you."
"Excellent course. I'd like to continue with a more
advanced course applied to the field of autism for
tutors. Thank you."
"Hello, I just would like to thank you that I could
take part on this course,I've enjoyed it a lot!"
