Make your service job your old job.

The employment landscape has changed significantly. Centriq can help you change with it.

You've heard us say it before, you don't need any IT experience to succeed in Centriq's 4-month IT Career Program. Our graduates come from many backgrounds and many industries.

Service, hospitality and retail are among the most common “old jobs” at Centriq. Developer, Network Administrator, IT Support and Information Security Analyst are among the most common “new jobs”. Regardless of your old job, we can help you get started in a career that provides a better future. Take a look at some of our graduates and the new jobs in technology that Centriq prepared them for.

“After 12 years in the service industry, Centriq provided me with skills and knowledge that I needed to take my first step into development. Changing careers can be a nerve-racking experience, but the instructors and career/student services teams really invest their time, energy and support into making the transition as seamless as possible. The opportunities that I’ve worked for and received since Centriq have provided myself with new challenges, passion and a better quality of life for myself and my new family.”

Now may be the perfect time for you to consider changing careers.

Centriq Training has temporarily transitioned our technology training to a live, virtual format. You still get our great live instructor training—only now you can do it from your home. When the social distancing restrictions are lifted, we will return to our face-to-face, instructor-in-the-classroom format.

More importantly, when you've completed our four-month program, you will be prepared for a new career in technology.
