Charleston, SC Campus

Campus History


Centura College first began offering career placement services in 1969, and in 1983 opened its first school, Electronic Institute of Technology in Norfolk, Virginia. Over the years, it continued to expand its training options and campus locations. In 1995, our parent company, Employment Services, Inc., opened its first campus in South Carolina under the name Beta Tech. The school was located in Charleston, and it initially taught health care and skilled trades programs. In 2000, the school was relocated to a larger facility on Rivers Avenue in North Charleston, and its name was changed to Centura College in 2008. In 2012, a new building was built on Rivers Avenue to further expand the school.
