To some, working from home sounds like the perfect way to keep up on projects and daily work activities. But with much of the workforce working from home under the current “shelter in place” restrictions, many projects are being pushed. This often leaves more time to take on additional tasks. If you or your team have been eager to learn a new skill or strengthen your existing skills, why not use this extra time to take an online, remote or virtual technical training class?
WhAT IS LIVE VIRTUAL TRAINING: sAFE SOCIAL DISTANCING AT cENTRIQ
With the health and safety of our students and employee team being of utmost importance – and in compliance with government directives – Centriq Training has transitioned its entire operations to a hybrid workforce. All classes, all operations and all sales functions at Centriq are now operating on a hybrid schedule, with reporting locations split between in-person and remote operations. (Read about Centriq’s Response to COVID-19). Our classroom atmosphere is currently split between in-person learning along with our Live Virtual Training. In-person classes vary depending on the learning path and what classes better perform with in-person learning where our remote classes are taught through our Live Virtual Training. Both of these learning options prepare our students for learning the skills they need to advance in their IT career.
PowerShell Training: Scripting the Base of Your IT Knowledge
Windows PowerShell is no longer considered an elective class for IT professionals.

New class structure separates training for the two CompTIA A+ exams and adds hands-on components for less experienced IT pros.
With the introduction of the A+ 1000 series in 2019, CompTIA significantly expanded the content covered by the two exams required to obtain the A+ certification. (What is the A+ certification?) There is a greater emphasis on Cloud computing, virtualization, Internet of Things, cybersecurity and networking than in the previous 900 series. There is also additional content covering IT support roles, operational procedure competency, problem-solving as well as data management, IT security and Cloud technology. The result is that the two certification exams are more challenging than ever before – especially if you are new to your technology career. That’s why Centriq has recently revised its CompTIA A+ training curriculum to give students a better understanding of the material and a greater chance of obtaining their A+ certification.
What is the CompTIA A+ Certification? Everything You need to know
Updated entry-level certification offers new IT professionals the ability to demonstrate technical competence.
The CompTIA A+ exam is the only vendor-neutral industry recognized credential with performance-based items that prove IT pros can think on their feet to perform critical IT support tasks. The A+ Certification is trusted by employers world-wide to identify their department experts to help with quick and efficient troubleshooting.

What SharePoint is Used for & Why it’s the Center of the O365 Universe
We are all creatures of habit. And the biggest business habit is email. A form of technology invented in 1971 is too often the primary tool to communicate and collaborate in today’s business environment. Think about that. We have stretched that outdated technology to work in a way it was not initially intended. We make folders. We make subfolders. We scroll through endless conversations in the all-too-often vain attempt to find attachments. We need a productivity-boosting, headache-ending upgrade.
Enter SharePoint – the center of the O365 universe.
Many studies and articles over the last couple of years have brought attention to the types of “soft” skills employees need to be successful in today’s ever-changing workplace. NOTE: See a list of links at the end of this article for more information. In fact, many would argue that these “soft” skills are just as important (if not more important) than the “technical/hard” skills required for the job.
