Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) Course - FAQ

When is the next application available? 

The next session will begin July 7, 2022 - December 30, 2022. The application for the July 7 - December 30, 2022 RBT course has reached capacity and is now closed. 

Where can I access the application?

The application will be available on the CDE ASD webpage. You can also be notified when the application becomes available by signing up for the ASD ListServ. To join the Autism Spectrum Disorder listserv please contact Brooke Carson or Rhonda Danner. ​

Am I required to secure supervision?

No. Many individuals take the course, simply for the knowledge. If you choose to go on for the certification, you will need to find a BCBA to provide supervision.

Do you keep a waiting list?

No, we do NOT keep a waitlist. This course will be offered again on July 7, 2022. Registration will open on June 6, 2022.

Can I get credit for taking the course?

CDE does not offer pre-approved CEUs. You do receive a certificate of completion and can use that to apply for CEUs. Currently, Pittsburgh State University offers the opportunity to apply for 3 credit hours of college credit following completion of the course. This is typically used to move on district pay scales. Most universities do not accept this as an elective. Follow up with your own university/school district to see if this option would apply to you.
