The Hampton Roads Chamber works hard to set the conditions for businesses to succeed. We were honored to be on hand for Centura College’s expansion. Growth such as this supports the core of our mission to advance workforce development and economic development.
On Wednesday, February 3, Commonwealth of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam joined business leaders, educators, and elected officials, including Chamber President & CEO Bryan Stephens, to recognize the start of Centura College’s new wind turbine technician diploma program. The 12-month diploma program provides hands-on training, industry-experienced instructors, job placement assistance, financial aid, and multiple certifications for professionals looking to enter the field of wind tech and energy. Located at the Centura College Norfolk campus, students will be well-positioned to serve the offshore wind industry as it develops off the shores of Hampton Roads.
