Student Results From Coding Bootcamp Coalition: 92% On-Time Graduation Rate, $70K Salary

Apr 6, 2017

BOOTCAMP RESULTS: Learn to code, get a job—and get paid well. Such is the tantalizing offer that coding bootcamps make. But are the numbers too good to be true? The Council on Integrity in Results Reporting, a coalition of 31 coding bootcamp providers, reviewers and funders, has released its first set of outcomes for students who attended a program during the first half of 2016. A bird’s-eye view of results from nine schools found a 92 percent median on-time graduation rate, 80 median in-field placement rate and an average starting salary of $70,412.

CIRR is headed by Skills Fund, an organization that provides loans to students who need financial attend coding bootcamps. (Tuition can be close to $20,000 for some programs.) Ensuring that these schools follow the same set of standards and transparency when reporting outcomes, Skills Fund’s CEO, Rick O’Donnell, told EdSurge in the past, is a prerequisite for deciding which programs to provide loans to.
