The Psychiatric Technician Program is a three-semester program designed to prepare qualified men and women to practice as psychiatric technicians. The program provides two approaches to learning; coursework is combined with practical application. Clinical training occurs in hospitals and health agencies. A certificate in Psychiatric Technician is granted by the college after completion of the program, and the student is eligible to take the examination for licensure. The academic subjects for both the Certificate and A.S. Degree are offered at Napa Valley College.
