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).
- Of 19 graduates 19 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Motorcycle/Power Equipment Technician program for program year 2008-2009 is 100%.
- Of 16 graduates 13 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Motorcycle/Power Equipment Technician program for program year 2009-2010 is 81%.
- Of 21 graduates 18 were hired in training-related positions. The employment rate for the Motorcycle/Power Equipment Technician program for program year 2010-2011 is 86%.
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 Motorcycle/Power Equipment Technician program page and also read our graduates’ Success Stories.
