I was tired of doing something that didn’t feel that valuable to me. Centriq changed my life ... Personally, it’s given me confidence. To provide for my family, but also to have something that I can build on – I mean, Centriq was the key to that. It unlocked a lot for us. The flexibility I have now is unmatched."

"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."

“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.”

“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.”

"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!"
