Newport News, Virginia
Centura College first began offering career placement services in 1969. In 1983, the company opened its first school, Electronic Institute of Technology, in Norfolk, Virginia. Over the years, training options and campus locations expanded, resulting in the campuses uniting under the new name of Tidewater Tech. In 1991, Tidewater Tech opened its fourth location in Hampton Roads just off Greenbrier Parkway in Chesapeake. After years of growth, the Peninsula campus relocated to its larger current location on Denbigh Boulevard, Newport News, in 1991, and in 2008, the school’s name was changed again, this time to Centura College.
