The Behavior Analyst Certification Board requires 1,500 supervised hours by a board certified behavior analyst to be eligible for certification.
Students can earn these hours while working, and can begin accruing hours from day one of starting the master’s program. Many students in the program earn their hours while they work and are enrolled in the program.
To earn certification, students must earn a graduate degree—completing required coursework—while also completing experience in line with current experience standards. Finally, each student must take and pass the required examination.
