Classroom Experience - November 2020

Student Comments

  • “I really appreciated the build from a foundational experience toward us actively participating and creating our own scripts as a practice. The methodical nature was awesome. Making a potential mundane topic exciting was very much appreciated. I also appreciated the ability to ask questions at any time and there was no rush on time. Time was built into the class for interaction.”
  • “I liked the “crawl, walk, run” type of atmosphere. The repetition allowed for better retention of the information.”
  • “Small group and the hybrid environment. I think you get so much out of being in person for some classes and activities so it’s an awesome combination of online and in-seat thus far.”
  • “How it’s broken down and builds up to the next thing. I also like those things that were taught in the first week are being reviewed and were taught in an attempt to lessen the load this week. Worked great!”

Adam Jurotich – Networking Fundamentals 2 – Days (STL)

  • “Adam really helped me through the second week of Net+”
  • “Adam is an amazing instructor and as with every week before, he has gone above and beyond.”
  • “As always Adam has provided a fantastic learning environment.”

Chris Dunbar – PowerShell Programming for System Administration – Days (KC)

  • “I’m not very good at giving constructive criticism anyways, but Chris was amazing. He keeps a good pace and stops to help when needed. I loved how he would pause after getting finished with something so anyone who had issues or questions could ask without feeling like they are interrupting.”
  • “Does an amazing job of relating skills and knowledge used to real-world situations.”
  • “Fantastic on answering all questions that were given, and thoroughly explained the subject.”
  • “Great job, you taught us some good stuff and showed what was practical. Thanks for all the help and answering questions”
  • “good at keeping everyone engaged even virtually”
  • “I really appreciated the build from a foundational experience toward us actively participating and creating our own scripts as a practice. The methodical nature was awesome. Making a potential mundane topic exciting was very much appreciated. I also appreciated the ability to ask questions at any time and there was no rush on time. Time was built into the class for interaction.”
  • “Chris Dunbar is awesome! He definitely knows the material and just as important I think he truly enjoys the material. That really translates into the learning of the material. I had fun learning and it was very interactive.”
  • “Being virtual is always a challenge. But the ability to share screen was advantageous.”
  • “PowerShell is FUN! Truly enjoyed learning about this. Hope to learn more soon.”
  • “No change. Going through PowerShell was both fun and informative.”
  • “It took something I knew nothing about and increased my knowledge far more than I could have expected. Chris is that dude!”
  • “Chris did a great job!”
  • “I would not. And Chris taught himself this material. Thank you for introducing this to us. The guys at TGS ALL SAID you MUST learn scripting, specifically PowerShell to do well in the field.”
  • “The fact we built from one day to the next worked very well and made it easier to grasp the concepts.”

James Caldwell – C# Fundamentals 2 – Days (KC/STL)

  • “I really appreciate the light-hearted and positive atmosphere. Learning all this new code is super stressful and it’s nice that you understand that.”
  • “great attitude every single day. always willing to help.. would go out of his way to make sure every student understood the material no matter the level being taught. Keep up the good work James!”
  • “From the first ten minutes on Monday, I was actually blown away with his ability to engage us all on a personal level and find things in common in a no-pressure discussion as the first activity for the week. It really set the tone and it actually changed the standard I have for instructors going forward. James was patient, friendly, positive, and high energy. He had a great sense of humor, and he also made clear that he was not infallible and could make mistakes just like any of us junior programmers can. After one week of learning from James, I am feeling so much more confident in my abilities and I am really going to miss not having him for the weeks ahead.”
  • “James was a great instructor and very very nice.”
  • “This week I feel I am really starting to hit my stride in the virtual classroom environment.”
  • “Both students and instructor were welcoming and friendly”
  • “It is tough to think of a way to improve the content of this particular course without wider coding knowledge. I had zero prior programming experience before Centriq aside from some basic HTML I learned in around 2001. I am actually blown away how much I have learned after just 3 weeks of training so far.”
  • “I really appreciate labs that are *fun* like the dungeon app and the Magic 8 ball. These pieces of code are things that would interest me outside of class, so I feel they were a great way to hold my attention as well as teaching me practical concepts in C#.”
  • “It was very clear and easy to understand”

Steven Russell – Security+ – Days (KC)

  • “Steve is amazing per usual. Superb teacher.”
  • “Having you explain it makes it so clear and easy to follow”

  • “Great Instruction and applying the course material to real-world scenarios. Very knowledgeable of the material being taught.”
  • “On the first day of classes, I was worried by the silence from Prof Pflumm before class opened up at 8:30. The class was completely quiet and nervous about the new environment. However once class started I then learned that he wanted to wait to introduce himself to everyone at the same time, making sure nobody was left out. Although I was nervous at first, I respected and appreciated that decision.”
  • “Great job!!!”
  • “I truly have no complaints”
  • “Pflumm creates a comfortable environment by engaging with everyone in the class in a professional and friendly manner. I appreciate that he sets clear expectations and holds each individual responsible for their actions.”

Shawn Nelson – Front-End Development 2 – Days (KC/STL)

  • “instructor’s knowledge about the material was on point! His ability to facilitate the course-ware and demonstrate the topics are extremely helpful to those of us with a little slower learning curve. Thank you again Shawn for all that you do for CENTRIQ and their stacudents!”
  • “I very much appreciated Shawn’s ability to read the needs of students and adapt his style to our needs. A great example is his decision to hard code with us during the code-along rather than to rely on copy-and-paste to teach new functions. Once one student said they preferred to type the new functions out, Shawn made sure we were typing out the code while saving time by copy-and-pasting the comments for notes.”

Jim MacAuley – Windows Server Administration 1 – Days (KC)

  • “Jim is very patient as it is like he has 15 kids that are asking him questions at the same time! He takes his time to make sure you understand the answer to your question before he moves on. and makes sure everyone’s questions have been answered. Jim is very interested in every student’s success and it shows in his attitude towards his students which is a very positive one”
  • “Jim was great. He had patience with the class. I really liked his energy which gave me the motivation to learn the material. I’d say if anything, after asking if anyone has a question, wait a little longer because I know a lot of people are reluctant to ask right away”
  • “Fantastic teacher. Always takes the time to answer every question and apply it to real-world situations and always has an awesome attitude which really keeps me engaged the whole time.”

  • “Explained in-depth CMDLETs and individual commands. I was able to learn a lot!”
  • “I loved the different scripts we wrote out. It made things easier to understand and fun”
  • “I would not be where I am now without Adam taking the time to help me with things that were not directly class-related. His advice and guidance on both life and the IT world have prepared me for that next big step. I will greatly miss having him as an instructor and highly recommend anyone who s a course with him.”
  • “I really enjoyed having Adam as an instructor. He helps make things easier to understand as well as fun to learn.”
  • “For the last 6 weeks, Adam has consistently created a learning environment that has given me the confidence and skills to start a new journey into the world of IT.”
