The Learning Resources Network (LERN) is the world’s largest association in continuing education and lifelong learning, offering information and consulting expertise to providers of continuing education and customized training.

Founded in 1974, LERN serves more than 9,000 professionals every year. LERN provides practical, how-to information on marketing, finances, management, sales and product development. It is information not available anywhere else. It’s “Information That Works!”®

Services include publications, newsletters, webinars, conferences, institutes and in-house training programs and consulting to members and others.  The LERN Club on this website includes reports on continuing education and customized training best practices, trends, and benchmarks; online discussions with colleagues from around the world; news; surveys and more.

LERN serves a wide variety of institutions, including state universities, four-year colleges, colleges within universities, private colleges, community colleges, technical colleges, public schools, recreation departments, and associations.

Every year we research and disseminate the most advanced and sophisticated information. Recent work has included: profit margins—what makes money; redesigning of job descriptions; the information specialist position; an action strategy for internal marketing; developing a product mix for your segments; why you need seven market segments; the shift from products to markets; and how to measure staff time.
