Tech Elevator, an educational provider, helping individuals and companies gain technology skills, launched its new center in Wilmington,  at 824 North Market Street.

The company is now accepting student applications for its January 2022 coding boot camp cohort. In addition, Tech Elevator partnered with Tech Impact, a technology education provider and solutions for nonprofit organizations, to offer its full-time program at no cost to eligible student applicants.

Tech Elevator and Tech Impact will work together to reskill 200 area students over the next three years. The opportunity is made possible through Tech Impact’s Tech Hire Delaware initiative to train current job seekers for middle-skilled occupations in the IT industry. The effort is supported with a Delaware Department of Labor One Workforce grant.

“Together with Tech Impact, we can make career transformation possible for individuals who dream of a tech career and are eager to change the trajectory of their life. Because we can offer the program for free through Tech Impact’s One Workforce Grant, this campus will be unlike any other,” said Caitie Zajko, campus director, Tech Elevator. “We will be able to generate significant economic impact both for our students and the community in a very short timeframe.”

Tech Elevator has placed nearly 2,000 students in technology jobs at over 500 companies, representing an aggregate increase of more than $2.5 billion in lifetime earnings, a release stated. 

The coding boot camp has five other campuses in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia and its National Live Remote program serves students online around the country. Tech Elevator is committed to transparency in outcomes reporting through CIRR.org and has a graduation rate of 95% and a 180-day job placement rate of 90%.

Zajko stated, “We are excited to serve as the connector for our students to opportunities in tech with Delaware employers, including leading financial institutions like Capital One, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Bank of America.”
