What Does It Mean To Earn Your Certification As A Behavior Technician Specialist?

If you have a love of psychology and behavioral health, a behavior technician role provides a good balance of both. Our Behavior Technician Specialist certification program sets you up to begin your career with the skills to thrive and earn your credentials as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). Through the MedCerts RBT program, you will learn a series of documentation and protocol rules and regulations that have to be adhered to, not only for thorough records but also according to the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) guidelines and HIPAA regulations. You will study a list of subjects written by a licensed BCBA-D (Board Certified Behavior Analyst – Doctorate) and BCBA in order to learn the material needed to test and pass the BACB RBT Certification exam. Both of these are extremely important – this course is offered as part of the RBT training and should be understood prior to taking the BACB examination for the RBT certificate.


This certification ensures individuals can:

  • Provide a direct implementation of behavior-analytic services based on the BCBA’s recommendations
  • Reduce/avoid behaviors while understanding the motivational operations behind their behaviors
  • Have a basic understanding of applied behavior analysis and functional behavior assessment tools
  • Teach children and adults language/communication, social skills, daily living/adaptive skills, pre-academic skills, and more while recording and analyzing data along with the BCBA
  • Comprehend and define behavior clearly and set a measurement technique


The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) is the issuing authority for certifications in the field of applied behavior analysis.
