Fifth Annual Alumni Appreciation Event
On October 18, 2017, Centriq Training hosted the Fifth Annual Alumni Appreciation event. It was a night of delicious food, fun, and great people! Alumni of Centriq’s IT Career Program had the chance to participate in admin or developer themed escape rooms – challenging their knowledge in application creation and debugging, servers, and trivia.
Additionally, students were given Bingo cards with networking items on them so they could easily engage with others in attendance. At the end of the evening they could submit their card for a drawing if they got a Bingo or a Blackout. Alumni also networked with representatives from the six event sponsors: Grantham University, Liquid Logics, Velocity Staff, TGS, Choice Solutions, and Power I.T.Read More
The field of IT is constantly growing and evolving, as well as the professionals within the field. Centriq Training’s Alumni Network understands the importance of Continuing Education. We provide a free Continuing Education event every quarter to support our graduates in their growth and development throughout their career.
There are many other opportunities for Continuing Education, as highlighted by our grads that recently attended a 5-day training class. They shared their individual process for obtaining Continuing Education, including any requirements within their organization, why it’s important to them and other opportunities they’ve found helpful to keep up their skills.Read More
Once you graduate from Centriq’s New IT Career Program, you receive a very prestigious title – that title is TechSmart KC Alumnus or Alumna! In addition to the pride that title brings you, it also entitles you to certain perks.
One of the perks we rolled out recently was the Centriq Alumni Job Board which was developed specifically for graduates of our TechSmart KC program. It makes job searching easier for you because you can sign up to be notified of jobs via email that match your area of expertise and/or experience level via real time notifications.
Plus, we are excited to announce that we’ve added an Events page to the Job Board! This events page is a resource you can access to find local technology events, Centriq’s Corporate Division’s sponsored or hosted technology events, Centriq Hiring Events, as well as Centriq Alumni events, so check it out.
This board is for you, so if you hear of events or jobs you’d like us to share with your fellow alums, send them to Tina Pugh at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kiera Roberts at email@example.com so we can spread the word.
If you haven’t already signed up on the Alumni website and would like to do so, contact Tina at 913.322.7060 or Kiera at 913.322.7038 to receive a registration email. As access to this site is limited to Centriq Alums, we can only share the link directly with graduates of our program, so reach out today so you don’t miss out!
Over the last several years, students have utilized the VCE Client and our practice test servers as a resource for Test Pass Guarantee and exam preparation. At the end of September 2015 we transitioned to a new platform to host our practice exams and course materials. Students who started the program September 28, 2015 and forward have been using this platform and will have access during their year of benefits (one year from their start date).Read More
