Survey: Training, career choice tied to salary

WESTMINSTER — More than 1,000 recent graduates of technical programs at Front Range Community College (FRCC) report earning an average annual survey of $26,229, according to a survey conducted by the FRCC Office of Institutional Research.

The survey, which had a response rate of 59.4 percent, found 74.6 percent of those respondents were in a job related to their FRCC technical training.

Environmental science graduates reported the highest average salary ($40,498 per year); while early childhood education graduates were among the lowest ($17,514).

“Front Range Community College is a good example of what Wall Street Journal reporters Bob Davis and David Wessel wrote about in their 1998 book ‘Prosperity: The Coming 20-Year Boom and What it Means to You,’ ´ said President Tom Gonzales.

The authors, who featured FRCC among 14 other community colleges in their book, called community colleges “the unheralded aid stations of American Education (that) will help millions move from $7-an-hour jobs to $17-an-hour jobs.”
