The Clinician-in-Training (CiT) Program: A Beacon to Guide Your Journey

The CiT program at Bierman is more than just a training program – it’s a transformative journey. It serves as a launchpad for aspiring Behavior Analysts, offering a unique blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, making Bierman the perfect destination for BCBA job seekers.

The 8-Step Journey to Becoming a CiT at Bierman

  1. Embark on the Journey: First, you begin with an introduction to the world of Bierman Autism Centers, familiarizing yourself with our ethos, our mission, and our approach to therapy. This helps you understand our commitment to ensuring every child receives the best possible care and support.
  2. Dive into Learning: Next, you dive deep into video learning sessions focusing on foundational skills and specific processes, providing you with the academic knowledge you need to become an effective practitioner.
  3. On-the-Job Training: Simultaneously, you also start your hands-on training, shadowing seasoned BCBAs. This on-the-job training lets you observe and learn directly from experienced professionals, helping you apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations.
  4. Mastering Skillsets: Here, you start developing your practical skills, participating actively in therapy sessions guided by your mentor. This phase allows you to apply your knowledge in a controlled environment under the watchful eye of your mentor.
  5. Collaborative Learning: This stage involves interactive learning sessions with your peers and mentors, exchanging ideas and learning from the experiences of others. Collaboration is key to growth, fostering a spirit of shared learning and continuous improvement.
  6. Independent Practice: Now, it’s time for you to put what you’ve learned into practice independently. With the support of your mentor, you begin to handle therapy sessions on your own, gaining confidence in your abilities.
  7. Receiving Feedback and Refining Skills: Feedback is a crucial part of learning. At this stage, you receive comprehensive feedback on your performance, helping you identify areas of strength and areas that need improvement. This constructive feedback helps refine your skills and prepare you for future BCBA job roles.
  8. Graduation and Beyond: Finally, upon successful completion of all previous stages, you graduate from the CiT program fully prepared and confident to excel in BCBA jobs. But the journey doesn’t end here – you become part of the Bierman family, continuing your career development and helping shape the future of ABA therapy.
