I am not aware of Center() function, but using the following snippet
any widget can be easily centered.

from PyQt4 import Qt as qt
def center_widget(w):
    d = qt.QApplication.desktop()

    screen_w = d.width()
    screen_h = d.height()

    widget_w = w.width()
    widget_h = w.height()

    x = (screen_w - widget_w) / 2
    y = (screen_h - widget_h) /2

    w.move(x, y)

 if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = qt.QApplication([])
    win = qt.QWidget()
