Our Community

We are proud of the amazing technology community that has developed in both Kansas City and the Midwest over the past 25 years and are honored to be part of it.

Centriq Training is committed to the development of the IT workforce in Kansas City. Our History is proof of it. Our People are Kansas Citians. We’re locally owned. You know exactly where to find us. Our revenue goes back into the Kansas City economy and supports other local companies. We love BBQ and jazz. We root for the Royals and scream for the Chiefs. We are Sporting fans (as much for their techy ways as for their winning soccer). We are proud of the role we play in this great city.
