Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) Training

This training program is delivered online and is based on the Registered Behavior Technician Task List published by the Behavior Analysts Certification Board and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential. The program is offered independent of the BACB.

The training course provides activities and quizzes to help you learn the material. Online delivery provides you with the flexibility to move through the material at your own pace and participate in online discussions with your peers and instructors.

The Centre for Behavioural Studies Journal Club

This Club meets at various times throughout the academic year. Meetings are held in the evenings at the Centre. Recent articles are reviewed and discussed at each meeting. The Centre is an Approved Continuing Education (ACE) provider, and therefore CEU’s are available.
