    Since the first six courses approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board as meeting the coursework requirements for eligibility to take the Board Certified Behavior Analyst Examination could I potentially apply for my BCaBA after completion of those courses and field experience?

  • Our curriculum has been approved by the Board as meeting the coursework requirements for the BCBA exam. As such, it is highly probable that the same coursework will be acceptable at the BCaBA level; however, we have not yet pursued official approval from the Board for the BCaBA exam and cannot guarantee that it will be accepted. We highly recommend that you reach out to the Board for verification, though. You can submit an application to have your coursework evaluated by the Board, and upon review of your application for coursework evaluation, they can advise you what coursework can be accepted and what, if any, addtional coursework is needed in order to meet the requirements.
