Online Autism Outreach Training

Are you someone who lives in BC and is working with a child who has autism? Expand your knowledge and upgrade your skills with the Online Autism Outreach Training Program.

Created in partnership with the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD), the training program consists of two credit courses that are part of the Behaviour Intervention Certificate. In Teaching and Learning: Foundations (DACS 1150), you will learn Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) methodology and how to use it in your work. The Behaviour Intervention Lab (DACS 1341) is a seminar-based course that will give you the opportunity to refine your skills (based on review of submitted videos) and reflect on your behaviour intervention practice. 

Instructors are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts who are highly experienced in working with children who have autism. All coursework is done online, so you don’t need to relocate or travel to take advantage of this opportunity. Plus, you'll have the advantage of participating in real time video seminars with your fellow students and instructors every other week. As this initiative is sponsored by the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD), there are significant cost reductions for students. 

This year's student fees are $300 plus a textbook (approximate cost of $90), which saves you more than $450. Please note student fees are subject to change every year. 

With the Online Autism Outreach Training program, you can begin working toward a formal credential and your career supporting people with disabilities. 

The two courses can be applied to a Behaviour Intervention Certificate and/or a Classroom and Community Support Diploma-Behaviour Intervention Specialty from Douglas College and other post-secondary institutions.
