Tech Smart KC
The Application/Web Developer (or Coding) training is based primarily on Microsoft’s enterprise .NET C# (Visual Studio) development platform which is utilized by a vast majority of Kansas City employers. However, just as the technology workplace is integrating and utilizing more and newer open source coding tools, students are also exposed to the newest technologies. Students enrolled in the program will receive all necessary courseware, a laptop computer (which the student keeps), supplemental study materials, supplemental seminars and workshops, placement assistance and other student services and access to post-graduation continuing education events.

I went to Centriq to take a test. I was forced to leave my valuables (phone, wallet, etc.) in an unlocked drawer. When I objected, I was told that the door to the room will be locked. After taking my test when I came out, the door was wide open, and there was no receptionist nearby. They used to have lockable lockers, but apparently that is too much of a hassle for them now. Leave your valuables at home. Only take two forms of ID with you. The test environment was fine. Except that in a big room, they seated me right next to someone who was also taking another test rather than separating us. I thought that was not cool since I kept getting distracted by the other test taker (and he probably got distracted by me).
