Licensed Career School Survey Results, July 2015


In May 2015 the New Hampshire Department of Education, Division of Higher Education sent an enrollment survey to all 79 of New Hampshire’s licensed career schools. The response was overwhelming: 70% of schools replied! We are pleased to report that 11,192 individuals completed a career-school certificate or certification in 2014 and our state’s licensed career schools offered almost 380 certificate or certification programs. Overall, our survey and licensing data show that nearly 19,000 students were enrolled in New Hampshire’s licensed career schools in the last calendar year!

In addition to enrollment and certification questions, the survey also included questions about how our career schools support GI Bill Benefit programs, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and the New Hampshire Health Profession Opportunity Project (HPOP). We learned that twenty career schools accepted GI Bill benefits and 324 vets received Career School certifications/certificates in the past year. Eighteen of the survey respondents offered WIOA-approved programs with 332 people receiving WIOA program support. 294 people completed WIOA approved certificates or certifications. Thirteen of the survey career-school respondents were approved by HPOP and supported 205 HPOP students. 150 students completed a certificate or certification with HPOP support.
