Program Overview

The two-year Behavioural Science Technician (C146) diploma program will teach you the science of behavioural change, otherwise known as Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). In this field of study, students will learn behavioural principles, practice assessment and intervention procedures, and develop professional skills to seek employment in a variety of workplaces (autism, mental health, gerontology, acquired brain injury, organizational behaviour management, sport, etc.)

Please note that this program does not teach counselling or "talk therapy."

The themes studied in the Behavioural Science Technician program include:

  • Behavioural theory
  • Behavioural assessment
  • Scientific method
  • Ethics and professionalism
  • Behavioural acquisition and reduction strategies
  • General education with an emphasis on practical application in the field

The Behavioural Science Technician coursework and placement experiences prepare students for direct implementation roles in a variety of settings.

Students who elect to transfer to our degree program and/or continue their education in behaviour analysis may find employment opportunities with additional responsibilities.

  6. Adhere to federal, provincial and professional policies and regulations associated with the ethical practice of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) among various populations or service sectors.
  7. Apply input gained from collaboration with stakeholders (including individuals, family members and community members) and professionals in the field of service into effective client service intervention.
  8. Develop a reflective practice, using professional development and self-care strategies to enhance professional competence.
  9. Develop client-centred behavioural intervention plans that account for individuals’ rights, needs, goals and their social and community context.
