College Profile: Oconee Fall Line Technical College
Sandersville Technical College, a member of the Technical College System of Georgia, offers quality technical and continuing education, business and industry services, and adult education services. The College provides educational, career, and economic development opportunities in a student-centered learning environment for the citizens and communities of Glascock, Hancock, Jefferson, Warren, and Washington counties through associate degrees, diplomas, technical certificates of credit, and non-credit certificates.
Sandersville Tech's current facility was officially dedicated in 1996, and that same year the school began offering programs in twelve areas, including accounting, emergency medical technology, industrial maintenance, and practical nursing. John H. Sterrett became president of the institute in 1998. In 2000, due to legislation (Georgia House Bill 1187) that allowed technical institutes offering associate degrees to become colleges, the school acquired its current name, Sandersville Technical College. The college's centers in Jefferson County and Hancock County opened in 2003 and 2004, respectively.

An additional 2,264 students were enrolled in noncredit courses, and 843 students were enrolled in adult literacy programs. Lloyd Horadan, the college's current president, was appointed in 2006.
Sandersville Tech showcased its practical nursing and medical assisting programs at the 2007 "Taste of the Technical Colleges" in Atlanta. The college's commitment to health occupations fields is a response to statewide workforce needs. In 2006 Sandersville Tech implemented a new program in construction trades designed to prepare students for entry-level careers in residential construction.
Sandersville Tech's economic development programs include continuing education classes and certified manufacturing specialist training. The college has also partnered with Quick Start, a nationally recognized program that develops training for new and existing industries in Georgia, to provide training for such area businesses as Saint-Gobain Desjonquères (a French glassmaking company), Thomson Plastics, and Trojan Battery.
