The Applied Behavior Analyst Licensing Committee requires licensees to acquire continuing education according to the Behavior Analyst Certification Board requirements. (See below) Further, licensees must also follow the Rules and Regulations of the Committee.
Rule 1180-05-.12 states:
- It is the responsibility of every licensee to maintain his or her national certification and comply with all continuing education requirements of the credentialing entity, regardless of whether he or she receives direct reminders to do so. Licensees who are not certified through the B.A.C.B. must accrue continuing education hours commensurate with their level of licensing in alignment with the standards set by B.A.C.B. certification. No deadlines or fees related to late renewals or reinstatement will be waived based upon failure to receive reminders, ignorance of the requirements to maintain certification, or failure to keep track of important dates.
- Along with the application for renewal, all licensees shall submit to the Committee’s administrative office proof of completing three (3) continuing education hours on cultural diversity as specifically noted in the title, description of objectives, or curriculum of the presentation, symposium, workshop, seminar, course or activity. Cultural diversity includes aspects of identity stemming from age, disability, gender, race/ethnicity, religious/spiritual orientation, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other cultural dimensions. The topic of the presentation, symposium, workshop, seminar, course or activity need not be on cultural diversity, but one of the objectives or descriptions of the topics covered, shall clearly indicate attention to cultural diversity.
