CGTC Online Course Help Desk

Online students experiencing technical problems should first contact their course instructor for assistance.  Some problems encountered are a direct result of specific software requirements or the setup of individual courses. In the event the course instructor is unable to provide appropriate assistance, students can contact the Distance Education Coordinator, email the Help Desk, or call the Customer Communication Center at 478-988-6800.
