With so many options for coding bootcamps, potential students rely heavily on student outcomes to make informed decisions. CIRR (Council on Integrity in Results Reporting) is the new gold-standard for displaying and publishing student outcomes for coding bootcamps.

CIRR schools must display their results prominently for prospective students to evaluate.
