Whether you have an interest in Massage Therapy, Skincare or Makeup Artistry, the Tampa/St. Pete area is a wonderful place to study and establish your career. Cortiva Institute has an excellent campus located at 2370 34th Street North in St. Petersburg, Florida. In terms of local landmarks, we are located on the west side of 34th Street North between the Goodwill Store and the Wells Fargo Bank. The CVS Pharmacy and Dayton Andrews Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram dealership are also nearby. For our Cortiva Tampa/St. Pete students traveling to classes by car, convenient parking is available in front of our front door as well as just behind our building. You can access the parking spaces directly from 34th Street North.

This campus is just west of Interstate 275, making it easy for students from all over the region to attend classes. We are only about four miles northwest of downtown St. Petersburg with downtown Tampa being just over 20 miles away. If you’re coming from the Tampa area, you can access our campus by hopping on I-275 South or the Selmon Expressway. We have students that commute from a variety of nearby communities including Clearwater, Apollo Beach, Largo, Zephyrhills, Spring Hill and many others in the Tampa Bay area.

Cortiva Institute in St. Petersburg is in a two-story building that was renovated for us in 2017. Our campus features two new Skin Care labs with equipment similar to what you would find in professional spas and spacious work areas. For Massage Therapy students, our campus facilities have four multipurpose massage classrooms to accommodate both hands-on learning and lecture settings.

At Cortiva Institute Tampa/St. Pete, we have 15 instructors on staff to teach students everything they need to know to establish themselves in their chosen field and find success in their careers. We have been teaching massage therapy in this area for nearly four decades, which has enabled us to develop valuable relationships with many local employers looking to hire our graduates. Some of the many employers that we continuously work with include local spas and salons, high-end resorts, chiropractic offices, Massage Envy, and Hand and Stone. We love being a part of the local community here, so our staff and students regularly participate and have the opportunity to volunteer in local 5k runs and races, a variety of drives for community shelters, and many other events here in the Tampa Bay area.

Cortiva students get to enjoy attending classes here in warm and sunny Florida, especially since we’re just a short drive from Downtown St. Petersburg and the beautiful Gulf beaches. The Tampa metro area is home to over three million people, which translates to many promising job opportunities for Cortiva graduates. People from all over the country and around the world travel to this part of Florida in search of improved health, relaxation, and fun, making Tampa Bay a prime market for wellness and beauty professionals.

Some of the best beaches in the country are easily accessible from our Tampa/St. Pete campus, including St. Pete Beach, Fort DeSoto and Clearwater Beach. When you study in St. Petersburg, you also have the opportunity to spend your off days exploring the parks, arts, and abundant culture of our area. The Museum of Fine Arts, Vinoy Park, The Dali Museum and Demens Landing Park are all just a short 10 minute drive away from our campus.
