Make a difference in the lives of others

Are you looking for meaningful work where you are making a difference in the lives of others? Do you have a passion for helping individuals to lead independent, successful lives? Are you seeking knowledge on how to best support individuals with ASD? Skilled paraprofessionals who can work with adults and children with Autism are in high demand!

The Carolina Center for ABA and Autism has teamed up with higher education institutions across the state to offer online Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) training and certification courses to those interested in Applied Behavior Analysis! In these classes you will:

  • Learn about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) which is considered the “gold-standard” of treatment for improving symptoms of ASD.
  • Identify best practices for assisting individuals with functional communication acquisition, social skill development, and behavior change.
  • Earn a certificate of completion
  • Qualify to take the RBT certification exam to become nationally certified through the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB).
  • Make yourself extremely marketable to organizations across the country.

Students who pass the RBT exam will be considered for jobs at the Carolina Center for ABA and Autism Treatment, with locations across North Carolina.

Student Testimonial

“I’m a stay-at-home mom, but I have always been interested in working with children with special needs. Recently, I learned about the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) training program at Wake Tech Community College and thought that it was a great opportunity for me to start my career in the field of Autism. The highly structured courses ended up being perfect for me! 


I had a wonderful instructor to guide me through the course, who also provided me with extra learning materials and answered all of my questions. The course ensures a fun learning environment and is very much interactive, and getting a certificate of completion at the end is equally rewarding! I am now a RBT at The Carolina Center’s Cary clinic and very happy that I took this course!”
