Zip Code Wilmington has been getting plenty of buzz as its inaugural class recently graduated with much success, but it’s not the only tech-education initiative on the block: Tech Impact’s ITWorks just graduated its 16th class the other week, and all of its 16 students were placed in paid internships.

They celebrated the graduation Dec. 18 in Wilmington at Capital One’s Oliver Evans building.

The two Wilmington tech-ed programs are complementary — ITWorks is to back-end development as Zip Code is to front-end. ITWorks is all about hardware, said Jessica Mitchell, the program’s marketing and program specialist.

The intensive 16-week program is free, and organizers target underemployed young adults who want a career change and haven’t had the opportunity for secondary education. Students leave ITWorks certified in Cisco IT Essentials, Mitchell said.

Here’s where this class’ students got internships (which Mitchell said often — in fact, 70 percent of the time —  lead to permanent jobs and other opportunities):
