Best IT Classes in San Francisco

Introduced by the Harvard Business Review in 1958, the term “information technology,” or IT, applies to a variety of work roles involving both technology and business. Through the use of networks, computers, and other technology, IT professionals guide business decisions and help companies operate more efficiently. While related to computer science, IT is distinct in its focus on business, while computer science emphasizes creating digital products and systems. Many companies today even have dedicated IT departments full of workers who maintain the company’s applications, computers, networks, and cybersecurity. 

IT is a wildly diverse field encompassing numerous electronic activities, but it can be broken down into several high-paying subfields. In the cybersecurity division, workers focus solely on the upkeep of electronic security, while IT support professionals troubleshoot problems with software and hardware. Others work primarily with data: analyzing, processing, safely storing, and transmitting it. While some work alone, the majority of IT professionals work with a multi-talented team who can solve problems from multiple angles.

Planning for a long-term IT career? Give yourself the best shot at success by attending a local IT class or bootcamp. In addition to learning how to work with both hardware and software, your class can even get you up to speed on additional subjects you’ll need to know for your career. Depending on your chosen path, these might include network administration, business analytics, telecommunications, or database design and management.

In thorough courses like the Software Engineering Certificate and Data Analytics Certificate, you’ll build skills through hands-on practice while working one-on-one with an expert mentor. 

If cybersecurity is your dream career, you can prepare to become a Cybersecurity Analyst or Microsoft Security Operations Analyst by attending courses at TLG Learning. In addition to their online career training courses, they offer classes designed to train professionals to succeed at certification exams such as the CompTIA Security+ Certification Exam and the Network+ Certification Exam (N10-008). If you’re interested in exploring outside of cybersecurity, TLG also offers courses on other IT subtopics including Architecting on AWS and Excel.

Additionally, you’ll have no trouble finding classes on all sorts of IT subtopics, from machine learning and Python Data Analysis to (AWS) Academy Cloud Architecting

San Francisco Industries That Use IT

There are thousands of businesses across San Francisco that are looking for IT professionals to help them smooth out operations and increase sales. Because of the positive impact IT services have on profits and data security, IT has become an essential building block in San Francisco’s key industries. You’ll find IT professionals working in industries like tech and business services as well as finance and healthcare. 


Host to household names like Apple, Microsoft, and Google, San Francisco supports over 300 IT firms and more than 70,000 IT professionals. This incredibly gifted workforce is the reason San Francisco was selected as a Tier One city for tech talent, next to Seattle and New York City.


Surpassed only by the internet sector of IT, healthcare receives more investments than any other industry in San Francisco. The city’s thriving HealthTech network offers plenty of work for IT workers who can manage data, provide natural language processing (NLP), and prevent cybercrime. San Francisco proudly claims its heritage as home of biotech by hosting more than 300 Life Science firms, along with research institutions at UC Berkeley, Stanford University, UC San Francisco, and the University of San Francisco. In addition to working one-on-one with healthcare facilities such as UCSF Medical Center and Abbott Laboratories, many IT professionals find work at local HealthTech companies like Vir Biotechnology. 


San Francisco is the West Coast’s most important focal point for financial services and entertains 30 of the largest international banks in America. Along with locally prestigious institutions like Silicon Valley Bank, IT professionals can digital systems, manage data, and provide cybersecurity for major banking organizations like JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs. 

IT Jobs & Salaries in San Francisco

Since IT solves problems in all industries, IT professionals are needed everywhere. In 2020, demand was so high that companies paid over 3.6 trillion dollars for IT services, and that demand will likely continue to swell by 11% through 2029. Furthermore, Jobs in IT fields are generally high-paying, flexible, and come with plenty of job security. 

The average IT worker earns approximately $100,000 each year, roughly $55,000 more than workers in other industries. However, IT is such a manifold industry, and it’s not uncommon to see workers with different job titles earning different salaries. For example, most Business Analysts in Seattle yield salaries of $99,000 per year, while Data Engineers earn $155,000. Additionally, more experience also equates to higher pay. Thus, IT Support Technicians who start at just $84,000 per year can raise their salaries to $125,000 after proving their proficiency. 

While most people associate IT with support alone, the field offers an array of satisfying careers for people with different talents. The highest-paying roles include titles like Cybersecurity Engineer, IT Director, IT Director, Software Engineer, IT Project Manager, System Administrator, Data Analyst, and Application Manager.
