Educational Psychology – Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis
University of Southern Maine
The post-master’s Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis (CABA) is offered through the Educational Psychology and School Psychology programs and includes a twenty-one-credit program of study related to the research foundations, methods, ethics, and applications of applied behavior analysis. The certificate provides the coursework that leads to the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) credential. The certificate does not automatically lead to obtaining the BCBA. Becoming a BCBA requires 1,500 hours of supervised work experience in a behavior analytic environment under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The supervised work may be completed concurrent with the coursework, and must be supervised and documented. Visit the Behavior Analyst Certification Board Web site for detailed information concerning the BCBA credentialing, supervised work, and examination requirements. Upon completion of coursework and supervised work, students must also pass a national exam. Those who complete the required coursework, the supervised work, and pass the national exam will earn the BCBA. The supervised work experience is arranged by the student, independent of the University or Educational Psychology program, and may occur concurrent with or after completion of the coursework.
