Centura College first began training individuals for new careers in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1969, and over the years, it continued to expand its training options and campus locations. The school began independent operations in 1982 on Euclid Road as The Electronic Institute of Technology. It relocated to a larger facility on Lynnhaven Parkway in 1986 and continued to expand its training options. By 1989, the campuses in Hampton Roads offered such a variety of training that the school’s name was changed to Tidewater Tech. In 1991, the campus moved again to a larger building at the corner of Lynnhaven Parkway and Dean Drive, where it is located today. In 2008, the school’s name was changed to Centura College.
Centura College’s Virginia Beach campus offers training for careers in health care, business and computers.
