Prestigious ranking honors nation’s fastest-growing private companies

OnCourse Learning, a leading provider of workforce solutions and education for the healthcare, real estate and financial services industries, ranked No. 3,429 on the 2017 list.

“The Inc. 5000 distinction is an example of the extraordinary dedication of our team members,” said OnCourse Learning President and CEO Patrick Sheahan. “They have been tenacious in moving OnCourse Learning forward. Our people are truly our biggest asset.”

OnCourse Learning is part of an elite group, according to Inc. Media President and Editor in Chief Eric Schurenberg. Of the tens of thousands of companies who have applied for the honor, only 10 percent have made the list four times.

“To be honored four times is remarkable,” Sheahan said. “We are driven to continue growing and helping our customers and clients enhance workforces and advance careers.”

Inc. 5000’s annual list measures the growth of companies based on a three-year period. This year’s list measured revenue growth from 2013 to 2016.

On average, Schurenberg said, companies that have made the list have grown sixfold since 2013. Over that same time period, the nation’s economy has grown just 6.7 percent. From 2013 to 2016, OnCourse Learning grew 92 percent.

Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success.

The 2017 list is the 36th annual ranking by Inc. Magazine. Winners will be recognized Oct. 10-12 in Palm Desert, Calif., at the Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala. The September edition of the magazine also will feature this year’s winners.

OnCourse Learning is a CIP Capital portfolio company.
