How Hiring a Centriq Grad is Equivalent to Hiring Someone with 1-2 Years of Experience

How Hiring a Centriq Grad is Equivalent to Hiring Someone with 1-2 Years of Experience

June 18, 2019 in IT Career Program / by Alex Carnahan

You may be asking yourself, “how is it possible that someone coming out of a four-month IT training program could possibly have a knowledge base similar to someone with 1-2 years of real-world experience?”

The answer: Centriq Training isn’t your average IT school.

With immediate exposure to hands-on learning and labs that simulate real-world environments, our graduates leave equipped with not just the “why” behind what makes the IT world go ‘round, but the job skills required to immediately contribute to a business’ needs.  Our curriculum is built to fully immerse students in physical and virtual environments seven hours a day, five days a week for four months. They leave our program with 455 hands-on classroom hours where they learn technology by doing technology.

This intensive, hands-on learning culminates in a final project where they implement their knowledge in a real-world setting.  In just four months, our students go from having little to no IT experience to building a data driven web application from front to back, or implementing a full server and network infrastructure built on physical rack servers and network devices.  Most importantly, our graduates have learned how to learn.  Their ability to learn and implement new knowledge quickly, coupled with their IT training, means the onboarding process at your company is easy and efficient when hiring a Centriq graduate.

Kyle J., a 2018 Centriq graduate, noted that his company was “impressed with my knowledge after only 4 months of training.  I had a firm grasp on the principles and core concepts of development and I was able to begin contributing to the cause almost immediately.  I had the skills to start working on tasks that my coworkers with a bit more experience were doing, and the senior developers didn’t feel the need to water down their words because they were concerned that I wouldn’t understand.”

Similarly, employers that hire from Centriq have found that “a Centriq graduate has a proven commitment to learning technology…and the end result is often an experienced and skilled IT employee.”  Our graduates’ drive to learn not just the “why” behind technology, but the demonstrated know-how, means they’ve “turned out to be some of the strongest fresh IT employees [employers] encountered.”

But don’t just take it from us, reach out to Centriq today and come see for yourself the true level of IT experience our graduates can bring to your company.

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true…it’s Centriq.
