Based in downtown San Francisco, Learn iT! has served the training needs of businesses, government agencies, and individuals since 1995. CEO Damon Lembi drives a team of employees dedicated to making learning efficient, valuable, and pleasurable. Learn iT! also manages a carefully selected network of nationwide instructors, allowing us to train on a national scale or for major roll-outs.
Learn iT! provides live, hands-on, instructor-led training in:
Microsoft Office, Design, Web Design & End-User Training
IT & Technical Development
Project Management, Business & Leadership Workshops
Why use Learn iT?
You want to feel secure with your choice of training providers, and we want to make sure you know we’re different from other training companies.
We’re proud of what we’ve built here at Learn iT! Below are some of the reasons why we’re the best choice:
The Best Instructors
We are very picky about who we hire because we understand that our Instructors are our product.
In a recent hiring, we filtered over 100 qualified resumes, conducted 34 interviews (with experienced candidates), and held 17 “advanced stage” teaching auditions – all for one Microsoft Office instructor!
Our Training Directors obsess about teaching theory and continually hold Advanced Instruction Workshops. We like to think that if teaching were an Olympic sport, we’d be in it every time.
Our Real World Experience
It is important that instructors have a strong mix of real-world experience and know-how. Our instructors have worked as professional designers, IT managers, project managers, and other significant real-world positions. And, all of our instructors are experienced adult education providers. Part of the joy of teaching is bringing our experience to others.
Personal Attention from Your Dedicated Account Manager
Most training facilities don’t have account managers; they have order takers.
Having an account manager assigned exclusively to you allows us to learn how things work at your company. Your account manager will understand your needs and personally attend to creating an effective, smooth experience. We’re not interested in pushing “cookie-cutter” training. Our account managers’ job is to make your job easier.
Account Managers aren’t “order takers.” They’re here to help. We’re very proud of the special programs we have set up.
Classes can be ½ Day, or Less
In the real world people can’t always get away for a full day. Our application classes are broken into 4 hour “modules” allowing you to cut costs and time. Plus, you can focus on specific needs – learn just what you want.
Our Professional Development (business skills & leadership workshops) courses can be broken down into 90 minute “Power Tool” classes. Get in, learn a life changing skill, get out!
We’re the Right Size – With a “Make it Happen” Attitude
Learn iT! is small enough to provide individual personal attention, and we’re large enough to handle company-wide training needs and major roll-outs. There’s a reason companies like Adobe, Google, and eBay use Learn iT!. See our Client List, and prepare to be impressed!
Training is Customizable to Your Needs
Most schools have set curriculum, and that’s what you get. We only hire experienced professionals, which allows us to customize courses to the needs of your organization. Focused training is effective training.
There’s something special about a family owned company. Working at Learn iT! feels like a family. Four of our full-time Instructors are working at Learn iT! for the second time, which says something about the kind of company we are. Learn iT! cares about people.
Four Schools in One
You have better things to do than juggle multiple vendors. Our four major “learning areas” allow clients to use Learn iT! as a one-stop-training-shop:

Learn iT!: Microsoft Gold Learning Partner, PMI Partner
Many schools want our qualification-based parternships, but few have them. Rigorous application processes include curriculum auditing, instructor licensing, and quality checking.
Our trainers are all up-to-date certified. Our design instructors have passed Adobe’s extremely difficult ACE exams. Our project management instruction is audited and approved by the prestigious Project Management Institute.
If Microsoft and PMI trust us with their good name, you can be sure we’ll do our best to shine!
You might think it’s silly to point out that we’re nice on a “Why Use Us” page, but we’re told over and over again by our clients that one of the best things about Learn iT! is that it feels like we care. We are in the business of improving lives, and we act like it. Maybe that’s why we go the extra mile.
