Placement Rate Definition

The placement rate is determined by using the ABHES required method of calculation, for the reporting period July 1 through June 30, as follows:

Placement Rate = (F+R)/(G-U)

F=Graduates placed in their field of training
R*=Graduates placed in a related field of training
G=Total graduates
U**=Graduates unavailable for placement

*Related field refers to a position wherein the majority of the graduate’s job function requires the use of skills and knowledge acquired through successful completion of the training program.

**Unavailable is defined only as documented: health-related issues, military obligations, incarceration, continuing education status, or death.
