Centura College - Newport News Reviews
Centura College Newport News campus the staff was exceptionally welcoming, motivating and determined to help me achieve my personal goal of becoming a Massage Therapist. The staff is available to assist with the transition of returning to school, they offer job placement assistance during and after graduation, they also assist with helping you find the resources, living, daycare, transportation, etc. I am really looking forward to my education and completion of the Massage Therapy program.
The college instructors work in their field, so we are presented with real world situations in class. There are a lot of hands on in the labs. We are able to go out on jobsites and experience what it's like to work as an HVAC technician in the real world. I've learned more in two months of this class than I learned working for an HVAC company for two years.
I had my fears about going back to college to get a degree in the field that I was interested in. I went to Centura College and talked with an advisor about enrolling in the Massage Therapy course and to provide me with some information on how to get started. The advisor was very helpful and also answered any questions that I had to calm my nerves. Also, provide a tour of the facility and was able to meet a few of the instructors throughout the facility.
