The Tech Academy's CIRR Outcome Reporting
By: The Tech Academy
In order to make these decisions, students need two things: accurate information on graduate outcomes, and information that is easily comparable from boot camp to boot camp.
That is why The Tech Academy, along with many other boot camps, have joined The Council on Integrity in Results Reporting. Our school is committed to transparency, and to providing potential students with accurate, verified, and easy-to-understand reports on our outcomes.
The Council on Integrity in Results Reporting (CIRR) is a non-profit that aims to help provide potential students with accurate, transparent, and complete student outcome reports for participating bootcamps. What CIRR does is provide "a standardized system for measuring and reporting outcomes that all of its schools use." (cirr.org) The reports are easy for students to understand, ensuring they can make informed decisions about where to invest their time and money.
Information in the CIRR reports are verified and up-to-date. Participating bootcamps must report their graduate outcomes every six months, with documentation to back up the data. Documentation includes offer letters, written confirmation letters by employers, etc. This information is then verified by a third party.
The Tech Academy currently has graduate reports posted for our online program and Portland program from January to July 2017. As CIRR continues to post updated reports every six months, you will have access to the most current graduate data.
Here is some of the information you can find on The Tech Academy's graduate report:
• Within 90 days of completing the course, the percentage of online students employed in full-time paid positions in their field of study was 79.2%, with the number rising to 87.5% after 180 days.
• The median annual base salary for both Portland and online students was $60,000.
• 40.9% of graduates report their job title as "Developer".
