Graduation and Employment Rates
Accredited Career and Technical Schools are held to high standards of graduation and employment. We calculate on-time program completion and employment according to the formula established by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). The ACCSC sets as a benchmark a minimum of 70% training related employment for each program each year.
MTTI’s goal is education for employment. We count as employed only those graduates whose employment can be verified in occupations related to the program of study. We understand the value of continuing education after completing a program at MTTI, and also recognize there are many reasons that a graduate might not go into program-related employment directly after school. However, we do not count as employed those graduates who:
- Pursue additional education at another school (and do not work)*
- Enter the military (unless they accept program-related work within the military)*
- Are unable to work while ill or injured*
- Remain in or return to their past (non-related) jobs
- Move and/or change contact information and can not be reached to obtain their employment information
- Are not seeking employment while handling special family needs
- Choose (for other reasons) not to obtain employment at this time
*We can remove someone from the total number of graduates after obtaining (where possible) specific documentation (e.g., death certificate, physician's note confirming permanent or long-term disability, documentation of military service, proof of continuing education)
Current Program Year: 2011-2012 & Evening 2010-2011
- 26 students graduated; 23 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Medical Billing & Coding / Office Administration program for 2011-12 is: 88%.
- 4 students graduated from the evening program; 3 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Medical Billing & Coding / Office Administration 2010-11 evening program is 75%. (*This reflects students enrolled between 7/1/10 and 6/30/11. This is a 60-week, part-time program. Therefore students from 09-10 may be enrolled.)
Past Program Years:
- Of 35 graduates 24 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Medical/Dental Office Management* program for program year 2008-2009 is 69%.
- Of 36 graduates 27 were hired in training-related positions. One graduated was documented as having returned to school for further education. Another was documented as medically unable to work. The employment rate for the Medical/Dental Office Management* program for program year 2009-2010 is 79%.
- Of 8 graduates in the night program 5 or 63% were hired in training related positions. (*This reflects students enrolled between 7/1/07 and 6/30/08. This is a 60-week, part-time program. Therefore students from 06-07 may be enrolled.)
- Of 32 graduates 27 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Medical Billing & Coding/Office Administration program for program year 2010-2011 is 84%.
We strive to meet and exceed ACCSC's benchmark of 70% training related employment for every program each year. However, the actual percentage of graduates employed (in both training related and non-related occupations) may be higher than training related employment alone. We assist each graduate for as long as they are interested in and willing to seek employment; therefore, the employment numbers and percentages are not necessarily final. As graduates continue to seek work and enter into employment, employment percentages can increase.
MTTI is proud of our many successfully employed graduates. To learn how we prepare students for successful employment, please see the Medical Billing & Coding/Office Administration program page and also read our graduates’ Success Stories.
On-time Completion Rate

There may also be additional students who transferred to a part-time program and subsequently graduated. These graduates are not figured into the on-time graduation rate.
