About Us

Learn How To is the brain child of alternative education pioneer ACS Distance Education. The idea came as a response to a rapidly changing world. The world is changing, education needs to change too!

ACS was formed with the cornerstones of true learning in mind: Experience, Passion, High Quality, and Practicality.

As well as their continuing dedication to their students studying longer programs, ACS wanted to offer the busy folk of today this same quality education, but in a highly accessible form. Education at your fingertips, that would keep alive the flame of curiosity that burns in those who need to know more! And so Learn How To was born. Drawing from ACS’ enormous range of topics, and offered in a way that fits with any lifestyle.

Want to train your team? Corporate training required? We have that covered, too. We provide monthly subscriptions and can also offer special deals to larger corporations with many staff.
