If you have a love of psychology and behavioral health, a behavior technician role provides a good balance of both. Our Behavior Technician and the Medical Office certification program sets you up to begin your career with the skills to thrive and earn your credentials as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) and Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA).
Through the MedCerts RBT program, you will learn a series of documentation and protocol rules and regulations that have to be adhered to, not only for thorough records but also according to the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) guidelines and HIPAA regulations. You will study a list of subjects written by a licensed BCBA-D (Board Certified Behavior Analyst - Doctorate) and BCBA in order to learn the material needed to test and pass the BACB RBT Certification exam. Both of these are extremely important – this course is offered as part of the RBT training and should be understood prior to taking the BACB examination for the RBT certificate.
Earning the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) certification opens doors for you to expand your career into medical offices, hospitals, clinics and more. With medical front office administration training, you will be able to understand medical terminology and have a better understanding of the diagnosis of your patients.
You’ll encounter a variety of individuals in the healthcare industry and having training in professionalism in allied health will prepare you to handle any situation that comes your way. Each customer, patient, or client is critical no matter where you work, and no organization can afford to overlook or neglect the power of customer service skills.
In order to become a fully certified Registered Behavior Technician, you will be required to complete a 40-hour training before being eligible to take the RBT exam. After passing the exam, you’ll be qualified for direct contact with patients and a number of Behavior Technician related jobs. Earning both the RBT and CMAA national certifications demonstrate your expertise in ensuring the proper treatment of your patients, performing important tasks in doctor’s offices, hospitals, clinics and other healthcare settings, and providing excellent customer service.
*PLEASE NOTE: This training program is based on the Registered Behavior Technician Task List (2nd ed.) and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for RBT credential. The program is offered independent of the BACB.
There are additional requirements (outside of training and examination) mandated by the BACB for those on the path to earning the RBT designation. Visit www.bacb.com/rbt for more information.
