40-Hour RBT Only $99
Magellan Healthcare* recognizes how important it is that individuals and their families get the best, most effective care possible. And, we are not the only ones looking for enhanced ways to offer such support. As you may know, the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB®) created the Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT™) credential to complement the Board Certified Behavior Analysts and reflect the education and training required for the duties of a behavior technician. The RBT signifies the high standard of service that our customers and members come to expect.
Therefore, we have revised our ABA criteria for Behavior Analyst Support Staff.
Magellan is requiring that behavior analyst support staff that provide ABA services hold a certification of Registered Behavior Technician™ (RBT™) through the BACB® or hold a state-issued license, certificate or other designation as a behavior technician. In addition to the RBT, Magellan accepts the BICC to meet the requirement for paraprofessional certification.
Only the behavior analyst support staff who meet these requirements will be eligible to provide direct care services to Magellan members.
To date, we have sent out a letter to notify providers of this change as well as a follow-up communication extending the deadline for compliance to give applicable support staff sufficient time to obtain the RBT, state-issued license, registration, certification or other designation as a behavior technician.
To meet this fast approaching deadline, Verbal Behavior Institute offers a Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) certified 40-Hour Online Registered Behavior Technician training course. Our RBT course includes all the training needed to take and pass the BACB’s Competency Assessment Exam and become a Registered Behavior Technician™. Our training program is based on the RBT Task List and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential. The program is offered independent of the BACB.
