Berks Technical Institute was originally established in February 1982 when the Lehigh Data Processing Institute received its license from the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Licensed Schools to provide training in data processing. In January 1984, Lehigh Data Processing Institute was granted accreditation by the National Association of Trade and Technical Schools (NATTS), which today is known as the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
In May 1987, the Institute was privately purchased, and in 1990 changed its name to Berks Technical Institute. In May 1992, the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Programs (CAAHEP) accredited the Medical Assisting program upon the recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB).
