Altavista Center Building The CVCC Altavista Center opened in January 2001 at the Altavista Office Park (formerly the Lane Corporate Office Building) at 701 5th Street in Altavista. The Center offers a broad spectrum of day and evening programs in credit and non-credit modes and specialized training in workforce development for business and industry. Delivery systems include traditional classroom instruction as well as Web-based/Internet courses, Blackboard Collaborate*, computer assisted programs, and Lab-in-box learning.

Assessment services available are COMPASS placement testing, the new Virginia Placement Test (VPT) for math, Work Keys assessments, and career and interest inventories. Placement testing can usually be done on a "walk-in" basis during the hours of operation, but allow at least two hours prior to closing for each English and math placement exams. There is no charge for the placement tests.

Open computer lab time is set aside for enrolled students. Tutoring services in most subjects are available as needed.
