Full Description
The Capella University Behavior Technician training course is a non-degree and non-credit learning opportunity powered by Sophia and developed in partnership with the Center for Autism Related Disorders (CARD). The course is aligned with both the Board Certified Autism Technician (“BCAT”) credential task list and the Registered Behavior Technician (“RBT”) Task List (2nd ed) to meet the 40-hour training requirements for either credential. This course is endorsed by the Behavioral Intervention Certification Council (BICC), the independent certifying entity for the BCAT. Course materials cover the functional areas, responsibilities, and associated knowledge as defined by BICC. The course is offered independent of the BACB.
This is an exam preparation course and is not intended to lead to state license, credential or certification.

Sophia and Capella University do not guarantee that any candidate taking the Behavior Technician Training course will pass the BCAT or RBT exam and secure employment as a behavior technician.
