5th Edition Task List will replace the 4th Edition Task List

In January 2017 the Behavior Analyst Certification Board® (BACB®) unveiled its 5th Edition Task List for supervisees accruing experience hours for their Board Certified Behavior Analyst® (BCBA®) credential. The publication and announcement provided ample notice to current and future supervisees as the 5th Edition Task List will replace the 4th Edition Task List on January 1, 2022.

According to the BACB®, the updates to its task list were determined by a group of subject-matter experts after reviewing previous task lists, a survey from prior subject-matter experts, survey results from experimental analysis of behavior experts, and the published Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts.

Fieldwork Requirements

In addition to an updated task list, the BACB® updated the fieldwork requirements for supervisees taking the BCBA® exam on or after January 1, 2022. Candidates who apply for the BCBA® exam on or before December 31, 2021 can choose from three fieldwork options: Supervised Independent Fieldwork, Practicum, and/or Intensive Practicum. Required percentage of supervision and total hours required vary depending on experience type.

Candidates Who Apply

Candidates who apply for the BCBA® exam on or after January 1, 2022 can choose from two, not three, fieldwork options: Supervised Fieldwork and Concentrated Supervised Fieldwork. Supervised Fieldwork requires supervisees to complete 2000 total experience hours and receive supervision for a minimum of five percent of experience hours per month. Concentrated Supervised Fieldwork requires supervisees to complete 1500 total experience hours and receive supervision for a minimum of 10 percent of their experience hours per month.
