About the Psychiatric Technician Profession
A Psychiatric Technician is trained to care for mentally disordered and developmentally disabled clients. As a licensed psychiatric technician, you will work under the direction of a physician, psychologist, rehabilitation therapist, social worker, registered nurse or other professional personnel.
Employment opportunities are good locally for a licensed psychiatric technician and excellent statewide. The Department of Corrections and state developmental centers actively recruit psychiatric technicians. Additionally, graduates of our program are actively recruited and employed by local healthcare facilities with starting salaries of $15 - $27 per hour.
