The BACB VCS status or logo is not a seal of quality, it only indicates that select courses meet the minimum number of courses for BACB certification eligibility. ABAI cannot guarantee the quality of programs offering a VCS. However, ABAI-accredited and ABAI-recognized programs have been reviewed for quality. All ABAI-accredited (Tier 1) programs meet the BACB’s degree and coursework eligibility requirements for certification via Pathway 1. Additional information about programs and certification options is available in the FAQs section.
