Prepare for BCBA Certification Online With ABAI-Verified Course Sequence
Completing the ABAI Verified Course Sequence gets you one step closer to BCBA certification. In the certificate program, you will take courses taught by expert faculty, including:
- ABA 640: Foundations of Applied Behavior Analysis
- ABA 643: Behavior Assessment
- ABA 644: Providing ABA Treatment
- ABA 645: ABA Management and Programming
Convenient and engaging online courses encourage students in the ABA certificate program to participate in live interaction and discussion and complete their coursework and optional field requirements at their convenience.
Fulfill Supervised Fieldwork Requirements Your Way
Complete the supervised practicum hours you need for BCBA certification in two flexible ways, through either:
- Your current place of employment in the mental health or behavioral field
- Internship placement at local mental health organizations
For those with access to fieldwork supervision through their place of employment, the certificate’s seven courses may be pursued alone. While up to four internship courses (up to 2,000 supervised hours) are available for students with no experience, students with some experience may only need to complete less than four practicums in addition to the Verified Course Sequence.
Online ABA Certificate Financial Aid and Admissions
Students who are enrolled in a minimum of five credits per semester (three in the summer) may be eligible to receive federal funding to manage the cost of the online graduate certificate in ABA.
To learn more about financial aid, steps to enroll in the certificate program, and application materials, review the Graduate and Professional Programs admissions process.
