JOB DESCRIPTION
Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT™)
Or Behavior Tech

Job Summary:
A Registered Behavior Technician (RBTTM) provides behavioral intervention services to children with special needs and support to their families. Behavior Technicians are responsible for implementing Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) based programs under the supervision of one, or more, Board Certified Behavior Analyst® (BCBA®, BCBADTM) or a Board-Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst® (BCaBA®)

Minimum Training and Experience:

  • Completion of a bachelor’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis, Education, Psychology, Behavioral Sciences, or a related field.
  • Formal work experience with pre-school age children (for the ABA clinic) or school age children (therapy classroom)

Must meet all requirements by the BACB for Registered Behavior Technician Task List as well as obtain RBT credentials and maintain credentials while employed by Metro West Learning Center, LLC. (Candidates who are not RBTs must fulfill this requirement
once hired)

All staff assigned to this classification must obtain national certification within 45 days of employment, and such certification must be maintained throughout employment in this
classification at MWLC.

Nature of Work:
RBTs do not provide assessments or design ABA interventions; instead, they are responsible for implementing the interventions developed by their applied behavior analyst supervisor.

The RBTs provides behavioral interventions in home, community, and school settings and use ABA interventions to teach communication, social, and daily living skills and reduce problematic behaviors. They provide ABA interventions that encourage socially acceptable and functional replacement behaviors so clients can build and improve upon their communication, social interaction, and problem- solving skills. They may also provide direct assistance to the applied behavior analyst or assistant applied behavior analyst and engage in data collection procedures.

Although RBTs complete a course of training, RBTs receive a considerable amount of on-the-job training from their supervisor in the following areas:

  • Data collection procedures
  • Implementation of skill acquisition and behavior reduction interventions
  • Principles and procedures of behavior analysis

RBTs/Behavior Techs must have excellent time management skills and must be able to manage multiple tasks at one time. They must have excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to develop and maintain relationships with clients, supervisors, peers, and community members.

RBTs must use sound judgment and seek appropriate consultation from their supervisor to ensure treatment is provided without disruption to the client, to others, and to the environment.
