Medical Assisting Associate in Specialized Business Student Outcomes
The five-year weighted average for retention and placement for the Medical Assisting Associate in Specialized Business program at Berks Technical Institute is indicated below, based on the most recent Annual Report Form submitted to the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB) and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP):
Definition of Placement
The school uses the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) placement rate methodology. ACICS applies the following Definition of Placement to outcomes reported by member institutions:
- Placed based upon job titles: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon job titles included in the list of job titles published by the institution for which the program prepares students. These job titles must be those published by the institution on its web site in compliance with USDOE Title IV regulations and must be identified in the Department’s CIP-to-SOC Crosswalk (Standard Occupational Classification, U.S. Department of Labor) with the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code of this program.
- Placed based upon the required use of skills: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon the required use of skills learned in the student’s program as a predominant component of the job. These skills must be those listed in the institution’s published program description and a majority of these skills must be documented in the employer’s job description as required or desired skills, duties or responsibilities.
- Placed based upon the benefit of the training: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon the benefit of the training received from the program in obtaining a new position or maintaining a current position, supporting promotion or improving job related skills.
ACICS calculates placement rates as follows:
(Placed by job title + Placed by skills + Placed by benefit of training)
((Completers + Graduates) - (Exemptions*))
* Exemptions are certain categories of students which are excluded from the placement rate calculation. These categories are: pregnancy, death or other health-related issues, continuing education, military service, visa restrictions, enrollment in English as a Second Language (ESL) program, and incarceration.
