|Abstract: Abstract: The most common training scenario for individuals seeking certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst® and Board Certified assistant Behavior Analyst® is supervised clinical experience consisting of 1500 hours of experience with 75 hours of supervision. The panel will discuss this model of supervision in relation to other models of training, the variability this model allows for intensity and relevance of supervision to supervisee performance post-certification. The panel will discuss an effort to develop data-based criteria for training that will support the development of more effective professionals. Considerations for training competencies, measurement, and barriers to implementation will be discussed.
