The College was founded in September 1999 under the name, Core Technology Solutions Training Institute and changed its name to Pacific Computer Training Institute in 2002. The Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission recognized the College as a postsecondary educational institution and authorized the College to award certificates and, later, an occupational associate degree.


Since its recognition as an educational institution by the State of Georgia, the College has awarded hundreds of certificates in Information Technology and other academic programs and, in 2013, graduated its first class of students from its Associate Degree in Information Systems program. To more accurately reflect the scope and nature of its academic offerings, the College changed its name to Pacific Institute of Technology in 2010.
