Certification in behavior analysis (BCBA)
Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) is an American association that certifies behavioral analysts. The purpose of the certification is to increase patient safety for behavioral analysis interventions. To become a certified behavioral analyst (BCBA) requires a master's in behavioral analysis, education or psychology as well as an approved course sequence on an accredited education in behavioral analysis and 1500 hours of behavioral analysis work under the supervision of a BCBA. When you have completed the course, you also need to pass an examination. In Sweden, there are 17 certified behavioral analysts. If you want to find a Swedish BCBA, go to BACB's search function and select Sweden under International before applying. Our speech language pathologist Oscar Strömberg is a BCBA.
