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. Our parent company, Employment Services, Inc., opened its first school in the Greater Richmond area. Called Beta Tech, this campus was located in Petersburg. Three years later, it was relocated to the Arboretum building in Richmond, it 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.
