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. 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, and the name was changed to Interactive College of Technology. The campus includes laboratory and classroom facilities serving over 1,200 students from all over the world.
The institution educates its students in an environment that fosters interdependence between quality education and business enterprise with its motto of: QUALITY, SERVICE and COMMITMENT.
