OFTC was created on July 1, 2011, as a result of the merger of Sandersville Technical College and Heart of Georgia Technical College. The merger was part of a statewide plan to reduce costs in the Technical College System of Georgia.[4]

The school has two primary campuses, which were formerly the main campuses of its predecessor institutions. The campus in Sandersville is known as "north campus" and the campus in Dublin is known as "south campus." The school also maintains extension centers in Sparta, Louisville, Sandersville, McRae-Helena, and Eastman.[5]
