The Behavior Analysts Certification Board (BACB) Approved Course Sequence offered by Central Michigan University’s Psychology Department is offered to regularly admitted undergraduate students who have a major or minor in psychology and designed for our regularly admitted School Psychology and Experimental Psychology graduate students. The course sequence is for students who desire to obtain additional education, research, and practical experience working with individuals with special behavioral and learning needs using applied behavior analysis (ABA) principles.
The course sequence is designed to provide students with knowledge, skills, and professional training to use these ABA principles with a variety of individuals and settings. Graduates of the course sequence will be prepared to provide evidence-based practices in ABA and consultative services to support clients in schools, private practices, and agencies.
These courses take place at our Mount Pleasant, Michigan campus. We do not have an on-line program or satellite location that offers these courses.
