In 1998, Charlton Carlos Lester founded Omnitech Institute in Decatur, Georgia. (The school has since moved to Tucker, GA.) However, Charlton Carlos Lester was not a man of means. He came from humble beginnings and created his school from virtually nothing. In these early days, Charlton Lester worked around the clock, fulfilling the duties of President, CEO, professor, and others. He obtained licensing for Omnitech, and received accreditation and certification from the United States Department of Education.
