Behavioral Intervention Certification Council

BICC is a 501(c)3 non-profit established in 2013 to develop and administer autism specific certifications for behavior technicians and professionals that follow the principles of applied behavior analysis in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

BICC promotes the highest standards of treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorder through the development, implementation, coordination, and evaluation of all aspects of the certification and certification renewal processes. BICC is an independent and autonomous governing body for the Board Certified Autism Technician (BCAT) & Board Certified Autism Professional (BCAP) certification programs. Created by behavior analysts, BICC certifications are based on evidence-based treatment using the principles of applied behavior analysis. 

Mission Statement

The mission of BICC is to enhance public protection by developing and administering a certification program consistent with the needs of behavior analysts to recognize individuals who are qualified to treat the deficits and behaviors associated with autism spectrum disorder using the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis.

Certificate Scope

Individuals who earn the BCAT and BCAP designations are qualified to implement evidence-based, autism-specific treatment using the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis under the supervision of a qualified health care professional (QHCP).

What is Certification?

Professional certification is different than a training or educational program. Training programs offer a certificate of attendance when an individual completes the coursework, but they do not generally award a credential or require ongoing recertification. The BCAT & BCAP certification program was developed using a nationally recognized process to define the roles and responsibilities of autism technicians.
