Applied Behavior Analysis 4th Edition
This program is perfect for...
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Last classes for the 4th Edition we will offer in Summer 2021.
Beginning in Fall 2021, UCSB Extension/PaCE will offer ONLY 5th Edition classes!
Our program is perfect for practitioners who seek to make positive changes in individuals’ lives through the implementation and dissemination of applied behavior analytic practice. The Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) has verified the course sequence for the University of California, Santa Barbara Extension/PaCE as meeting the 4th Edition requirements.
Individuals who have successfully obtained their BCBA certification will be able to work in many disciplines/fields. BCBAs can offer their services in various environments such as (but not limited to), schools, hospitals, organizations, clinics, in-home, and private practice. Many businesses are now seeking BCBAs to help with organizational behavior management (OBM). Typically, BCBAs provide consultation, direct services, training/workshops, and supervision.
***Completion of the UCSB PaCE ABA certificate program does not result in BCBA certification. Individuals seeking certification must take and pass an examination with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). While courses in this certificate program may count toward the educational requirements for becoming eligible to take the examination, completion of this certificate program will not, in itself, result in BCBA or BACB certification. For more information about certification, visit http://www.bacb.com.
What you'll learn
Students under the 4th edition task list must complete all requirements (i.e., 270 hours of coursework and 1500 hours of fieldwork) and submit everything to BACB® prior to October 1st, 2021 in order to be considered for the 4th edition exam. If students are accepted by BACB® for the 4th edition exam, they have a 2-year authorization window to take the exam. If students DO NOT pass the exam within the 2-year authorization window, students must reapply under the new requirements (i.e., 5th edition). Also, if students are not able to complete all requirements by October 1st, 2021, students are encouraged to enroll in the 5th edition program.
Note* We like to encourage our students to complete all their requirements by October 2021 so that they have enough time to get approved from BACB to take the exam (it can take up to 30 days) AND take the actual exam. After December 2021, students will have to adhere to 5th edition requirements. BCBA EXAMINATION INFORMATION

"This series was ideal for someone living so far away from campus. I was able to go at my own pace - enrolling separately in each class at a time - which allowed me to continue my work while taking courses. I was also able to entirely self-manage the course workload and choose when to attend lectures, which meant that if my work in Senegal got particularly busy (or if we had day-long power outages or internet cutouts!) I was still able to complete all of my tasks on time. Also, the fact that I was eight hours ahead of everyone in California wasn't a problem at all. It was absolutely ideal for my situation."
