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 Norfolk campus opened on East Little Creek Road 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 Norfolk campus relocated to its current location on Military Highway in 1995, and in 2008, the school’s name was changed to Centura College.
The goal of the Centura College Phlebotomy Technician program is to prepare students to become Nationally Certified Phlebotomists with the skills required to perform various collection techniques, avoid pre‐analytical processing errors and ensure specimen integrity and patient safety. Both day and night classes are offered, and full-time students can graduate in only 6 weeks.
