“Professional development is essential to stay current on the latest developments, skills, and technologies required in a given field,” said Candice Colón-Kwedor, Ph.D., LABA, BCBA-D, Director of Professional Development and Research at BCI. “The BACB® states that behavior analysts must maintain knowledge of current scientific and professional information in their areas of practice and pursue ongoing efforts to maintain competence. Today’s professionals must commit to a ‘career-long learning’ philosophy that enhances effectiveness and furthers the knowledge they have already gained.”
In addition to being an ACE provider, BCI offers their employees professional development opportunities that include extensive pre-service training and continuous in-service training for their ABA Therapists and Behavior Analysts. BCI is also committed to training current and future generations of clinicians in the field via undergraduate and graduate program affiliations including on-site degree support through their partnerships with Quinsigamond College (Registered Behavior Technician, Associate’s degree program) and Bay Path University (BCBA, Master’s degree program) as well as an off-site program at Assumption College (BCBA, Master’s degree program).
