Ongoing Supervision Requirements
Every 90 days, the ABAT and QASP-S are required to meet with his/her supervisor for 5% of the time they provide direct services to a client. The 5% supervision can be done remotely, using a HIPAA compliant video conferencing program; however, one of the contacts must be one-to-one in-person for a minimum of 1 hour.
The QASP-S requires a supervisor (master’s level or above) to complete the online supervisor attestation form. Candidates must complete the 8 hours of supervisory coursework. They are required to have 5% of direct care hours supervised; however, once the QASP-S has completed 1,000 hours, they may reduce the supervision to 2%, upon supervisor discretion, with at least one contact in person one-to-one every 180 days.
If in-person supervision requirements place a hardship on the service provider or supervisor, or jeopardizes the provision of services, contact [email protected] to request a variance of this requirement. All variances are reviewed by the QABA Board for approval.
If you received a QASP-S certification prior to August 15, 2019, you will need to submit proof of completing 8 hours of supervisory coursework. For a complete description of the 8-hour coursework, please click HERE.
