|A1: Core Service - Provide post-secondary vocational and technical training to Alaskans.|
Target #1: At least 90 percent of Alaska Vocational Technical Center long-term students complete their programs.
Percent of AVTEC Long-Term Program Students Who Graduate (exceeded the target of 90 percent in FY2018)
Analysis of results and challenges: The Council on Occupational Education (COE) has nationally accredited Alaska Vocational Technical Center (AVTEC) since 1997. The COE benchmark for measuring "students that complete long-term training programs" is established as the national average of more than 400 similar public post-secondary institutions. For each year from FY1999 to FY2018, AVTEC has consistently met or exceeded the COE benchmark.
AVTEC started FY2018 with 33 students from the previous year and enrolled 179 new students during the year. Of those 212 students, six exited early and 28 are still in training and will be considered in the FY2019 numbers. Of the 178 students eligible for graduation in FY2018, 164 graduated, yielding a graduation rate of 92 percent.
