The Lord Lieutenant unveiled a plaque on the side of the main building.
He said: "The cadets have a marvellous opportunity to do adventurous things.
"It widens the experience of cadets who join and this centre allows all that to go on."
Army chiefs at Bramcote provided temporary accommodation for the youngsters in a selection of army cabins while the new centre was being built.

The Warwickshire Army Cadet Force has some 850 cadets, aged 13 to 18, who are looked after by more than 100 adults, which means a large centre was required to house the force.
The new centre can house up to 138 cadets at any one time and will be used on a regular basis, with training taking place on most weekends throughout the year, either at Bramcote or other military bases throughout the Midlands.
