Online Behavioural Interventionist Foundations Course (BIF)

We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Behavioural Interventionist Foundations Course (BIF), an innovative on-line course that provides a comprehensive theoretical introduction to the key principles and practices used by individuals involved in Behavioural Intervention. BIF is open to all community members and is a great learning opportunity for those who are interested in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) programming for individuals diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  The on-line format allows this course to be completed on one’s own schedule and is ideal for those who live in rural settings. For BC Residents, there is currently a $300 bursary available to cover a portion of the tuition, which makes this course very affordable. The attached flyer provides a description of the course and outlines how to register for BIF. Please contact us at or call 604.736.0094 if you have any questions.

Thank You,

Behavioural Interventionist Training Partnership
