The Central Georgia Technical College was established in 1962 as the Macon Area Vocational-Technical School. Originally there was only the Macon campus, but in 1990 acquired with the Baldwin County Adult Center in Milledgeville which in turn became its second campus. Since then CGTC has opened 5 more learning centers in the remaining 5 of the 7 counties it serves. The school is dedicated to providing the best education and training possible, reviewing its program offerings regularly  in order to ensure they meet the needs of students and the community, and updating and adding programs as required.

CGTC's primary campuses in Macon and Milledgeville offer associate's degrees, diplomas and technical certificates. The remaining five learning centers in Eatonton, Forsyth, Gray, Jeffersonville, and Roberta offer only technical certificates and continuing education courses.  Academic programs allow for transfer to four year institutions and fulfill the first two years of a four year education. Technical programs typically take between one and two years to complete, and provide students with a classroom education and practical training in order to develop the skills necessary to immediately enter the workforce. Graduates of these programs are qualified to perform the tasks and duties necessary for positions at the entry level.

Programs offered include:

Central Georgia Technical College also offers assistance through its Academic Success Center. The center provides training in test anxiety relief, computer skills, and study methods. This training is provided through group sessions, one on one tutoring, or through practice at home. Student are encouraged to choose the method which best suits them.
