Simon Sez IT makes business and technical software simple to learn. We teach people to use the most popular business software including Microsoft Office, Microsoft Project, Photoshop, Web Design and QuickBooks. We've been teaching online for over ten years.

It all started when the owner, Chris "Simon" Calder was working as a Project Manager in IT for one of Los Angeles most prestigious cultural institutions, LACMA. He taught himself to use Microsoft Project from a giant textbook and hated every moment of it. Online learning was in its infancy then, but he spotted an opportunity and made an online MS Project course which he sold on DVD via eBay. Fast forward to now and Simon Sez IT has taught hundreds of thousands of students through its online course platform and popular YouTube channel.
