ABA Licensure and Certification

Cairn University’s Master of Arts degree in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Graduate Certificate in ABA programs both contain a course sequence verified by the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) to meet the coursework requirements for BCBA certification by the BACB. 

Professional licensure and certification requirements can vary by state and territory. Additional licensure requirements may include professional examinations, background checks, years of work experience, fingerprinting requirements, etc. Students who are considering a program that may allow them to pursue professional licensure in the state or territory where they are currently located or where they plan to locate in the future should review the state’s or territory’s information below and contact the appropriate licensing agency to seek information and additional guidance.

State licensure requirements are also subject to change. Students should always check with their state licensure board to confirm licensure requirements.
