new career, new life

People from all types of backgrounds have changed their careers (not to mention their lives) with Centriq.

Centriq’s programs are designed specifically to train you for a new career in IT. Whether you are looking for a college alternative, want out of a dead-end job, just got laid off or are transitioning from the military into a civilian career, there’s a great chance someone in a similar situation and background like yours has changed their career, and their life, at Centriq. Here are just some examples:

“When I left the military, I knew I wanted a career in IT. I enrolled in classes at a community college but quickly realized it was not for me. I was completely dissatisfied with college life. I felt stuck behind what I thought was a necessary degree. My wife has worked in the IT industry for years and recommended Centriq to me… at the time, I had no idea how much Centriq would end up doing for my family.”

"Centriq completely changed my life. I dropped out of college with no real direction of what I wanted to do in life. After committing to learning software development and working hard for 4 months at Centriq, I landed a great job making more money than I ever have before. I am 20 years old and have become 100% self-sufficient, paid off my debt, own a new BMW coupe, and am loving my life, ALL THANKS TO CENTRIQ. Great teachers, great program. 5/5 stars, thank you."

"Centriq helped me discover my career direction and professional identity. I discovered the things I liked about IT, and the specific skills that I'm good at. I built a certain confidence in those skills that made interviewers drool at when I went into interviews. I was quickly hired as an IT Service Desk Technician. My future looks bright… I’m getting treated— and PAID— like the valuable asset I am. I finally know who I am as a professional and have a direction, and I made life-lasting friends and supportive relationships at Centriq Training."

"Before coming to Centriq Training, I was in the United States Marine Corps until 2015. In 2017, I graduated from the Aviation Institute of Maintenance but still wasn’t happy with where I was headed. I was referred to Centriq by a friend who completed the program… I liked that the program was only 4 months long and could get me into the workforce quickly. I enrolled in the program and am so glad I did! I was hired three days after graduating by PriceSpider. I have great benefits, consistent hours, good pay and a laid-back work environment. I will always recommend Centriq to anyone wanting a career change!"

“I had been in sales for the past six years and was tired of chasing unrealistic sales quotas. I was thirty years old with a girlfriend and two kids to support, so I knew I needed a more fulfilling career with a better income. Centriq gave me just that! I was hired as a software developer and love my new career. My girlfriend and I were able to get married and buy a house with the income boost. I also have a flexible schedule and the option to work remotely which allows me to be there for my kids for school events, or when they're sick.”

“I was working as a manufacturer when I was hit head-on by a drunk driver. The car wreck had a big influence on my life: I had a two-year-old, a spinal injury, no job, no income and no plan. When I heard about Centriq, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make a career move that would increase my quality of life and give me a better financial future for my daughter. Looking back, it was the best thing to ever happen to me.”

“I served in the United States Army as a military police officer for twenty years. After retiring, I thought about getting back into police work but I knew I needed more stable hours and better pay to support my family. After graduating from Centriq, I accepted a position as a Service Desk Analyst. My new career not only allows me to work in a field I love, but also gives me the flexibility to have a personal life with my kids and hobbies… something that was very hard to balance while serving in the military.”

“I spent fifteen years as a United Methodist Pastor. The denomination needed me to relocate, but I didn’t want to leave the Kansas City area. I knew it was time for a career change. I always loved technology, so Centriq’s 4-month IT Career Program seemed like a great fit.  Now, I’m a software developer and I love what I do! I get to make a difference for other people, I have more time for my family and we get to stay in KC!”

“I worked in the sales industry for fifteen years. After finding myself looking for work on multiple occasions, I decided to take a step back and reevaluate my career options. I have a young family to support, so I knew I needed a career with more stability— both financially and professionally. I talked some family members that were in IT and they said Centriq was the place to go if I wanted a career in IT. They were right.”

"After years of working blue collar and serving in the military, I was starting to ‘burn out’ and wanted a change. Centriq teaches you so much so fast it’s unbelievable, and most importantly you learn how to teach yourself new skills. Now I’ve started a great career that I enjoy going to every day instead of dragging myself to another job, and my family loves having me around now that I’m on a normal schedule!"
