For the last five years, I worked in the construction industry as a full-time job while freelancing as a writer and editor. My wife and I still haven’t decided if we want children, but for now our dog Peanut fills that role.

How to Configure Fine-Grained Password Policies in PowerShell

 

About a year ago, I held a seminar about Fine-Grained password policies. Several of my students asked me to document the important points in a blog. But they added a twist to the request. Instead of using GUI tools, they suggested it would be more helpful if I documented all of the steps in PowerShell. Never one to say no, I agreed. So to those students, this blog is for you!

First, a little background about Fine-Grained password policies.

From Average Joe to IT Pro

From Average Joe to IT Pro

May 24, 2019 in IT Career Program / by Hannah Mulligan

Hey! I’m Joe. I’m a graduate of Centriq’s Systems & Security Administration program.

Before I went through Centriq’s program, I was a struggling college student with no clear vision or goal for my career. I remember feeling lost, disconnected and confused. I was a rockstar in my technology classes, but I didn’t do well in other unrelated courses. I heard about Centriq’s 4-month IT Career Program on the radio and quickly set a time to meet with Russ.  I remember feeling so good about how sincere and real the staff was. That feeling was so refreshing after years of “just being a student who paid tuition,” (which is how I felt as a college student).

Ryan Ortbals

Bio

I attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where I received my Bachelor’s in General Studies.  After college I got a job working at Civil Design, Inc., a small civil engineering firm in St. Louis, where I worked for thirteen plus years as a Water Resource Tech and Land Surveyor. I worked a lot of rewarding projects during my time as a Land Surveyor. Some as small as locating property corners for a single home to as big as total bridge replacement over the Mississippi.  My most memorable experience I had as a surveyor was finding a property corner stone set in 1865.

Aaron Dawson


Bio

After graduating high school, I went to Missouri State University with the intent of majoring in IT but somehow ended up on the pre-medicine track. When I could no longer afford that, I worked in retail, customer service and warehouses. Unchallenged and unpassionate, I decided to re-spark old interests and found my purpose in IT. That’s what led me to Centriq. Now I’m having the time of my life and couldn’t be happier!
