Behavior Technicians may be either registered or unregistered, as determined by their status on the Behavior Technician Registry maintained by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, though all behavior technicians are encouraged to become registered and all related training is paid.

Locations will vary depending upon individual assignments, and may include working in homes, day care centers or schools, and using our clinical facilities at our Aurora location (near Mississippi and Havana) and our Englewood location (in the Tech Center).
