Legislation was passed in 2014 requiring the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists to regulate the practice of behavior analysis. Beginning January, 2015 individuals practicing behavior analysis must be licensed. The application for licensure is posted below.
As part of the application process all applicants must submit to a criminal history records check. Information regarding the criminal history will be sent to you once your application has been received. Please note:
Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) must be licensed by December 31, 2015
or the Behavior Analyst may be subject to disciplinary action.
The entire application process can take from 60 -90 days.
Therefore, the Board suggests you that you submit your application no later than September, 2015
to ensure attainment of license by December 31, 2015.
