- In 1961, a local committee began studying the feasibility of establishing an "industrial training center" to serve Sumter County. The committee's work culminated in 1962 with the passage of the enabling legislation, which created Sumter Area Technical Education Center. In 1971, the institution changed its name to Sumter Area Technical College. In 1989 the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education authorized Sumter Area Technical College to begin offering the Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science degree programs designed specifically for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. With the addition of the transfer programs, Sumter Area Technical College achieved the status of a comprehensive community college. In the fall of 1992, the College changed its name to Central Carolina Technical College to better reflect its service area. In 1998, the College assumed operation of the F. E. DuBose Career Center located in Clarendon County. In 2001, Central Carolina established the Kershaw County Campus in Camden.
