Specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Dr. Bill Matthew, PhD, BCBA-D, NCSP
The five-course sequence in applied behavior analysis is designed to prepare candidates for the national certification examinations sponsored by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). Upon successful completion of National Universitys five course sequence, the candidate will receive a certificate of completion from National University, but this is not professional certification by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) and does not entitle candidates to claim they are Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA's). Information about becoming certified through the BACB can be found at www.bacb.com
