RBT Training *Now Available*

One of the challenges regarding ABA in the UK is lack of credentialing and standardization of ABA service provision. That is why ABA Horizons staff are trained to standards set out by the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

The BACB presence in the UK however is almost non-existent, with less than 50 active RBTs in the UK*! This is something we're looking to improve. ABA Horizons is growing and we are currently looking to train RBT®s to work across all areas of the UK. You will receive full RBT® training by qualified professionals.

A background in psychology or education would be beneficial to the role but is not essential.

If you enjoy working with young people, are up for a challenge, have an interest in ABA and the desire to make a meaningful difference, this could be the job for you!

Parents, care providers and caregivers are more than welcome to attend RBT® training too!

Please register your interest via the form below and we'll keep you posted when we're ready to come to a town near you.
