California Psychiatric Technician Program

Licensure Examination Pass Rates

The California approved psychiatric technician programs with corresponding licensure examination pass rates are listed below. For more detailed information on a specific school, contact the school directly.

The Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians reminds you to schedule and take your licensure examination as soon as you receive your Authorization to Test. Your chances of success on the licensure examination will be greater if you test as soon as possible after graduation.

A list of programs that offer courses for licensed psychiatric technicians which are approved by the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians can be found on the DCA License Search under Psychiatric Technician Program License Type.

The individual programs should be contacted for information related to specific courses, course content, dates of courses, location and fees.

Pursuant to the California Education Code, Section 94816, schools are required by law to disclose the passage rates of their "graduates in the program for the most recent calendar year that ended no less than six months prior to the date of disclosure on any licensure or certificate examination required by the state."

Because the state licensing test is provided "on demand" throughout the year, the Board statistics listed below include applicants who may have graduated from prior classes other than the most recent calendar year. The Board is not reporting the pass rates of only the most recent graduating class. Therefore, the Board pass rates reported here may not correspond to the passage rates reported by the programs.
