SABIO JOINS WITH COALITION OF CODING BOOTCAMPS TO ESTABLISH COUNCIL ON INTEGRITY AND RESULTS REPORTING

Sabio Coding Bootcamp Solidifies Its Commitment to Reporting Graduation and Job Placement Data

CULVER CITY, CA -- March 1, 2017 -- Sabio Coding Bootcamp, a top rated coding bootcamp headquartered in Southern California, joined with a coalition of coding programs throughout the nation to publish student graduation and job placement data in a single, standardized framework that includes truth in advertising standards. Coding bootcamps that form the Council on Integrity in Results Reporting (CIRR) will apply the newly established definitions, documentation, and validation requirements to last year’s data and fully implement the standardized structure in 2017 reporting. Skills Fund, a student financing and quality assurance entity, is leading this effort. Sabio already partners with Skills Fund for fellows who need financing.


Sabio has been an advocate for integrity and truth in advertising for its coding bootcamp program since its inception in 2013. From the beginning, Sabio has tracked its job placement record and has maintained an over 90% placement rate. Sabio is also one of the few coding bootcamps in Los Angeles to be approved by the State of CA via the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE).  Sabio’s founders, Gregorio Rojas & Liliana Aide Monge, have bootstrapped their grown and operations since Sabio’s inception, and have been able to maintain detailed job placement records since they launched in 2013.  This approval showed that Sabio met the standards for integrity, financial stability, and educational quality as determined by the state of California.

Last year Sabio published The Definitive Guide to Selecting a Legitimate Coding Bootcamp, written by Sabio co-founder and Chief Technical Officer, Gregorio Rojas. This guide assisted bootcamp candidates with evaluating success metrics, instructors, and projects that students work on while in an accelerated coding education program.   This approval showed that Sabio met the standards for integrity, financial stability, and educational quality as determined by the state of California.

“We have taken proactive steps to be transparent and to provide would-be students and our current fellows with information that demonstrates how much we care about measurable results and job placement reporting. We’re happy to participate with CIRR to establish clear criteria and to promote accountability across the coding bootcamp industry,” said Gregorio Rojas, Sabio co-founder and Chief Technology Officer.

The CIRR standards will require coding bootcamps to release graduation and placement data on a semi-annual basis. 2016 data will be reported in accordance with CIRR methodologies on March 29th of this year, and bootcamps report all 2017 cohorts according to adopted standards criteria. Beginning this year, outcomes data will be validated by a third party on an annual basis. CIRR reporting will be made publicly available on Skills Fund’s, Course Report’s, and individual school’s respective websites for use. CIRR will also have standards for in-field employment and average salary.

“We’re excited to be among the elite group of coding bootcamps who are setting the standard for quality software development education. We want applicants to have all the of the data necessary to make informed decisions about these programs before devoting months of their life and investing thousands of dollars to make a career change,” Liliana Monge, Sabio co-founder and CEO said.

CIRR member organizations include Code Fellows, Codeup, DevMountain, Epicodus, Fullstack Academy, Grand Circus, Hackbright Academy, Hack Reactor, Ironhack, RefactorU, Sabio, The Software Guild, Thinkful, Turing School of Software & Design, Wyncode, Course Report and Skills Fund.
