100k + RBTs in the world, here's what ours have to say ...

The AppleTree Connection's RBT Training course gave me the tools I needed to succeed in the field of ABA. On top of everything I learned while enrolled in the course, The AppleTree Connection provided me with future opportunity to network and gain experience through their employee partnership program. I have now been working as an RBT for a year and a half, and am a graduate student who plans on becoming a BCBA. The AppleTree Connection's RBT Training Course should be the standard for anyone pursuing their RBT!

This course is different from other online RBT courses out there because this course has the option to take it in-person or online with the actual BCBA and RBT who is supporting and guiding you in the process of becoming an RBT. Therefore, I definitely recommend to those who is interested in pursuing a career in the field of ABA or students and even for moms looking for a career working with children. And thanks to the employment partnership that this course provided at the end because I was able to land a job immediately after completing the program with them :) so I highly recommend it!!!
