MISSION AND PURPOSE
The institution provides training required for emerging, in-demand occupations that satisfy both students and community needs and leads to well-paying positions. Societal technology requires increasingly greater skills, knowledge, and proficiencies for success in a vocation or profession. The institution strives to make the learning process an individualized, change oriented, market-centered process that enables each student, regardless of background, to maximize his/her potential.
The institution was founded in Athens, Georgia (as Akers Computerized Learning Centers) on April 12, 1982, approximately two years after development of the educational courseware had begun. The demand and popularity led to the opening of three additional sites in Atlanta in 1983, with a fourth being added in 1985. An initial Texas Campus was opened in Dallas in 1986.
On December 30, 1986, the organization was acquired by Interactive Learning Systems. Under new ownership, campuses were added in Houston, Texas and Florence, Kentucky.
In 1988, the Board of Directors was expanded and the institution received initial accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and School, Commission on Occupational Education. The initial six-year grant has been followed by three subsequent grants through 2012. In 1995, the Main Campus was approved to offer the Associate Degree in Office Technology, Computer Programming, and Electronics Repair Technology. These programs allow diploma-completing students to receive full transfer credit into the degree programs.
In 1996, the Main Campus was moved to Chamblee, Georgia, across from the MARTA station, and the name was changed to Interactive College of Technology. This campus, consisting of over 60,000 square feet of classroom and laboratory space, includes "Roberts Hall", dedicated to Board Chairman, Richard D. Roberts. The campus includes laboratory and classroom facilities serving over 1,200 students from all over the world. The campus is easily located by its "court of flags", featuring the flags of most of the countries represented in the student body.
Interactive College of Technology also has branch campuses in Gainesville and Morrow, Georgia. These campuses offer the complete ESL program and one-year diplomas in Business & Office Technology.
The institution is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE), which is the successor to COEI of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS):

7840 Roswell Road, Bldg. 300, Suite 325
Atlanta, GA 30350

This alliance, composed of most of the regional accrediting agencies, offers a system of accreditation to over 30,000 public and private institutions in over one hundred countries. By virtue of the institution being accredited by COE, the institution also holds accreditation in the CITA.
