TECH ELEVATOR ANNOUNCES CODING BOOTCAMP CAMPUS IN HOUSTON
HOUSTON, TX – March 28, 2023 – Tech Elevator, an intensive educational provider helping individuals and companies gain in-demand technology skills for the modern workforce, is pleased to announce the opening of its new campus in Houston, Texas.
Tech Elevator’s Houston campus will allow bootcamp students to access its world-class instructors through the online bootcamp, with locally focused career and placement support from our new Market Leader and supporting instructional staff. All students will also have access to the Tech Elevator’s local coworking campus at Industrious Westchase —to meet with other students for paired programming, whiteboarding sessions, one-on-one meetings with staff, or simply to enjoy a game night with fellow classmates.
“The Houston tech scene is exploding and we’re seeing more and more interest in Tech Elevator’s coding bootcamp from local career changers,” said Anthony Hughes, Co-Founder and CEO of Tech Elevator. “We’re expanding our footprint into Houston to meet that growing demand and we look forward to making a big impact with local individuals, local companies and communities.”
To offer local job search support with in-market connections, Tech Elevator recently hired Brian Candido to run the Houston campus operations, including oversight of admissions, student and alumni engagement, event coordination and business development.
Candido said: “Houston is known as the energy capital of the world, but its tech ecosystem is far more diverse than that. From space technology to biotech and everything in between, Houston has a thriving tech scene that is making waves on the national and international stage.”
Tech Elevator has placed around 3,000 students in technology jobs at over 750 companies, which represents an aggregate lift in lifetime earnings of more than $2.6 billion. The coding bootcamp has eight other campuses located in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Jersey City, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Wilmington, in addition to its National Live Remote program serving students online around the country. Tech Elevator is committed to transparency in outcomes reporting through CIRR.org and has earned a reputation for industry-leading placement performance—with a graduation rate of 93% and a job placement rate of 88%.
Tech Elevator is now accepting student applications for its 2023 coding bootcamp cohorts. For more information visit https://www.techelevator.com/locations/coding-bootcamp-houston-texas/.
