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, and our parent company, Employment Services, Inc., opened its first school in the Greater Richmond area. Called Beta Tech, this campus originated in Petersburg, relocated to the Arboretum building in Richmond and moved again to an expanded facility in North Chesterfield, on Midlothian Turnpike, where it is today. In 2008, the school’s name was changed to Centura College.
