The Progressive Behavior Analyst Autism Council developed the Certified Progressive Behavior Analyst-Autism Professional to build upon and extend foundational knowledge of the content mastered in a degree program in behavior analysis. This assumes that seminal and current works in behavior analysis were studied and mastered such as:

Skinner (1953), Science and Human Behavior; Sidman (1960), Tactics of Scientific Research; Johnston & Pennypacker (1980), Strategies and Tactics of Behavioral Research; Sulzar-Azaroff & Mayer (1991), Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change; McLean, Bailey & Wolery (1996), Assessing Infants and Preschoolers with Special NeedsLattal & Chase (2003), Behavior Theory and Philosophy; Engelmann & Carnine (1982), Theory of Instruction: Principles and Applications; Rosenberg & Schwartz (2019), Guidance or compliance: What makes an ethical behavior analyst; Etzel & LeBlanc (1979), The simplest treatment alternative: The law of parsimony applied to choosing appropriate instructional control and errorless learning procedures for the difficult-to-teach child; Stokes & Baer (1977), An implicit technology of generalization.

The learning objectives were based on the following references. It should be noted, that many of these references are built upon earlier works.
