HB 1719 Suicide Prevention Training Requirement

HB 1719 was passed during the 2018 legislative session and signed into law. The bill included language that amended section 337.315, 2. (1) and 337.320, (1) RSMo requiring Behavior Analysts and Assistant Behavior Analysts complete at least two hours of suicide assessment, referral, treatment, and management training, as a condition of initial licensure and subsequent to the renewal of the license. The provision went into effective August 28, 2018.

After January 1, 2019 an applicant for initial licensure as a Behavior Analyst or Assistant Behavior Analyst must maintain documentation of complying with this provision. The aforementioned two (2) hours can be part of the graduate course of study or obtained through self-study.

Licensed behavior analysts and assistant behavior analysts are reminded that current licensees must obtain the required two (2) hours of training each biennial licensure cycle. The renewal application will include a question concerning compliance with this provision of the law and licensees must maintain documentation of proof of compliance.
