Your profit

With rent and salaries, it's hard to reduce your largest costs. Ladder maximizes your profit by drawing more qualified students through your doors. We'll invest advertising dollars and community outreach for you — all for free.

In the past, we've doubled enrollment and reduced marketing effort.


Ladder will provide financing

Don't turn away students who can't pay up front.

For your students that qualify for Ladder and want financing, we offer friendly loan and financing terms — like a 0% APR loan, in some states — to help them pay for your class.

Don't worry about students who don't repay: Ladder takes 100% of the risk and hassle, and we'll pay you for the course directly and immediately.


Ladder will provide job placement

Solutions to help your students succeed.

Ladder's world-class career coaching and network helps us dig in to push students to success. Our coaches address the things life throws at your students — from financial & car troubles to guiding them through tricky parts of the CNA exam.

Ladder was an outstanding experience for me going towards a career I love to work in. Ladder stood strong with me from making it to class and also being prepared. Wonderful people with strong goals to help someone achieve their success in life. Normal people take baby steps but Ladder give a big BOOST!

After they complete your class, we'll find them a job through our Ladder Employers Network. We've developed relationships with top SNFs, nursing homes, and hospitals. This helps them land the best-fitting role for them.

We have deep experience in working with CNA students — including an understanding of the unique challenges many students have. We're not coming into this blind, and are eager to roll up our sleeves.
