You are Guaranteed to Pass Your Competency Assessment (See question #6)
1. When can I take my Competency Assessment?
After completing any40-hour RBT training course (2nd Ed.), students are eligible for the RBT Competency Assessment. There is no expiration date on your 40-hour RBT training course. As long as your Certificate of Completion says "2nd Edition", you are able to use it to take your Competency Assessment.

3. Who will administer the Competency Assessment?
The assessment will be administered by Katie Cook, a certified BCBA, as required by the BACB (Certification# 1-12-10219). Check out the 5-star reviews above.
4. What will we do during the Competency Assessment meeting?
The assessment involves direct-observation of all competencies listed on the RBT Task List. 17 Competencies will be evaluated online via “role-playing” (acting out skills and tasks with the instructor) during your online video meeting with your BCBA. According to recent updates from the BACB, All RBT competency assessments received after December 31, 2021 will require 3 Competencies to be completed "with a client" and video recorded or review by your BCBA.
5. What are the 20 Competencies?
Here is a link to the 20 Competencies covered in the assessment.
6. What if I do not pass?
You are guaranteed to be offered to take the Competency Assessment as many times as you need to pass for free. No additional fees are required. If the RBT fails to demonstrate competency in one or more of the tasks, the applicant will receive a “not passed” qualification on just those Competencies and another, shorter-meeting will be scheduled to repeat just those Competencies at no cost. Students will not be required to retake the entire Competency Assessment, only those few competencies that were not passed the first time. The assessor will provide performance feedback at the end of the assessment session and the applicant will be allowed to test again no earlier than the following day; this process may be repeated until all competencies are demonstrated. (NO retake fees apply).
7. Will the BCBA sign my RBT Application on the BACB Gateway?
