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 1987, the Peninsula campus opened in Newport News under the name Electronic Institute of Technology. By 1989, the campuses in Hampton Roads offered such a variety of training that the school’s name was changed to Tidewater Tech. 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 to Centura College.
