Do you need a degree to become a Registered Behavior Technician?
No, you do not need a degree to become an RBT. The Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), which is the organization that certifies RBTs, does not require applicants to have a college degree. However, having a degree in a related field such as psychology, education, or social work may be helpful in preparing you for a career as a Registered Behavior Technician and may improve your employability in the field. Some employers may prefer or require candidates to have a degree in a related field, even though it is not a requirement for RBT certification.
