About Us

Our History

Eastern Virginia Career College is a private college located in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  It was originally acquired as an unaccredited Health and Beauty Academy in 2000, and developed into Career Training Solutions, a post secondary institution nationally accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE) in 2002.  The school’s first Associate degree program, Registered Nursing, was introduced in 2008. In August, 2015, the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia approved Career Training Solutions as  a “degree granting” institution once a second Associates of Applied Science degree program, Occupational Therapy Assistant, was added to its educational offerings. This new status inspired the name change to Eastern Virginia Career College.

Today, Eastern Virginia Career College is the region’s first career college dedicated to adult career education. The college has Nursing, Allied Health, Wellness and Beauty, and General Education departments. EVCC offers certificate programs in Practical Nurse Education, Medical Assistant, Massage Therapy, Esthetics/Master Esthetics, Nurse Aide, Nail and Wax Technicians. In addition, students in degree programs are now able to complete their prerequisite college courses at EVCC.

The college’s strategic plan includes focused, student-centered education and providing service/learning experiences in our community.  For 15 years, Career Training Solutions, now EVCC, has achieved its fundamental mission to educate and train students to be professionals in career fields that employers regionally and nationally are demanding for their workforce.
