Behavior Technician and the Medical Office

September 3, 2020

This program offers a unique opportunity that not only prepares the student to perform administrative tasks within a medical office environment, but also gives them the tools and training necessary to become a Behavior Technician. A Behavior Technician provides direct implementation of behavior-analytic services, but does not design intervention or assessment plans. Some students choose this education path for professional development and career advancement, while others may have a child, grandchild, family member or friend that has been diagnosed with Autism or other developmental disabilities and have a desire to contribute to the support provided by others in the Behavioral Health community. Students learn about evidence-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles and strategies for helping individuals with developmental behavior challenges. Upon completion of this program, students will have met the training requirements to sit for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) exam, and the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) examination. PLEASE NOTE: There are additional requirements (outside of training and examination mandated by the BACB – Behavior Analyst Certification Board) for those on the path to earning the RBT designation.
