Although newly founded and named, the College's origins span more than one hundred thirty years of service to West Virginia through its two parent institutions, Bluefield State College and Glenville State College.

New River CTC's Workforce, Technical and Community Education, headquartered at the Advanced Technology Center in Ghent, offers a variety of customized training and workforce development programs that address the training needs of employers within the College's designated service district. During the past decade, programs and training have been provided that impact more than 7,000 employees from more than 60 companies. Additionally, in partnership with local vocational centers, the Region 1 Workforce Investment Board, and other educational partners, New River CTC designs customized certificate programs that emphasize industries and skills in which participants can obtain employment quickly and help to alleviate workforce shortages in critical industries that are targeted for growth and economic impact.
