Practical experience is a vital component of any behavior analytic training program. Practicing skills in supervised settings provides students with the opportunity to further develop their competencies and demonstrate that they have learned the technologies reviewed in their didactic courses. However, ensuring students are receiving quality practical training relevant to their needs while remaining in compliance with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) experience standards can be a challenge. During this event our panelists will describe their experiences coordinating practical training systems designed to meet the needs of their students and the standards set by the BACB. Topics reviewed will include, but are not limited to: diversity of training; site development; supervisor management, contact and oversight; assignments and grading; distance supervision; sequenced learning objectives; case management; training of trainers; record review/keeping; and international development. Faculty members directing practical training activities, students accumulating BACB experience hours, and supervisors overseeing their work should benefit from this discussion.
