Your Learning Journey at Centriq

Centriq is unconventional

At Centriq, you don't learn from long lectures or writing essays; we measure your progress through the skills you acquire. We teach different and increasingly advanced technologies, giving you specific skills and the confidence to learn the technology needed. In addition, we incorporate generative AI tools like ChatGPT to enhance our learning experience.

Here's how we do it:

Learning and Schedule Options

We offer a range of program options that cater to students of all situations. Our live coding courses are exclusively virtual, during the day or evening. Our cybersecurity program is all about flexibility - choose from in-person courses during the day or evening, participate in live virtual evening courses, or opt for our Flex Option, which allows you to complete course work on your own time, within a structured schedule.

Our Students (Your Classmates)

Your training program will include up to 25 students from all walks of life, many of whom will have had little or no previous experience in IT. Over the months, you'll work together as a team, getting a taste of what it's like in the real workplace.

Your Program

Whether you go for our live program or our new flex option, your program is a series of strategically structured courses. Each course hones in on a specific skill or asset. This way, you can focus on one thing at a time, be it a skill set or a tech topic.

Training Methodology

At Centriq, our training approach stands out because it's all about hands-on learning, with real-world tasks you'll encounter in your future job. Our classes are an interactive experience where instructors explain, demonstrate, and guide your independent practice. They evaluate your performance and make sure you've got a solid grasp of the material. Once you've mastered the core concepts, we provide challenges that mirror what you'll face on the job, setting you up with the practical skills to thrive in your career.

Our training prepares you to be able to do your job. If a server goes down, you've seen it happen and know how to get it up and running. If there's a bug in your code, you know how to find it and fix it."

Your project allows you to showcase the knowledge you've learned at Centriq, where you put all your cybersecurity or coding skills into solving real-world problems. It's not just a project; it's the proof, for both you and potential employers, that you've got the job-ready skills to kickstart your tech career.
