What’s New at Centriq Training
When is the last time you stopped by 8700 State Line for a visit? If it was before March, you probably haven’t seen our latest remodel. We are so excited about the newest changes to our facility, which includes more classrooms, new furniture for student use, and a new lounge on the first floor for our staff and instructors. If you haven’t seen it all in person yet, hopefully you will soon at our upcoming Alumni Appreciation Event on June 11! Check out the pictures below for a sneak peek in the meantime!
When you hear “Centriq,” what immediately comes to mind? IT Training? School? You may not be aware that Centriq is not just the name of our company, but also an acronym of our core values. Those core values are: Communication, Empowerment, No Student Left Behind, Teamwork, Recognition, Innovation, and Quality. These values are at the heart of our business, and direct our services and decision-making. For years, Centriq has recognized “Centriq Champions” every month – instructors or staff members who have embodied one or more of these values.
Last month, we decided to start giving Champion awards to our TechSmart KC students, as well. Read More
