Ok! that moment you have all been writing about and waiting for has arrived! I have finally made enough time in my life to copy and paste our BT/RBT Onboarding for you. I’m so thrilled to be able to share anything that will make your lives easier. Thank you for your positive feedback on our previously posted BCBA Onboarding! Please know that I am always open to suggestions so please don’t be too shy to speak up.

As with our BCBA onboarding, this does not include the basics such as the job application, i9, or W4. We have recently starting using an HRIS program. (After a long and careful search, we went with Bird Dog HR because within their performance management section, they offer the ability to do electronic score cards. What better way to give feedback than an OBM strategy!?!?) So employees use that system to complete the new employee basics. This list is all other training they have to do. This is also laid out in our BirdDogHR platform so it’s really a PSI for staff as they get acclimated with Applied Behavioral Strategies as an employer.

Note that all of this training comes with handouts and forms for attestation. Some of our training is also in video format so staff don’t get bored just reading things.

Did you know an 8-hour course in Supervision is REQUIRED for BCBAs and BCaBAs to supervise others?small group training

The BACB sent out a reminder yesterday, BCBAs and BCaBAs  should NOT be supervising students in training or RBTs or BCaBAs if they have not completed the 8-hour training.

Because some people missed this  memo and are feeling stressed, we have decided to offer the training again for those who may have missed the course previously.

Please see our website to register for Part 1 AND Part 2 to be held on August  6th and  August 7th. Both courses are required to fulfill the 8 hour  requirement.

Did you know that you must  complete 3 hours of supervision training every certification cycle thereafter? Each of our  courses fulfills that  requirement though only 3 hours are needed; Part 1  is recommended.
