About Us

A Vested Interest in Excellence

VMware Training Hampton RoadsFounded in 2002, ITdojo takes a different approach to IT training.  Put simply: we believe in learning by doing.  Year after year stories are recounted to us about IT training being little more than “Death by PowerPoint” coupled with instructors teaching the test rather than the material.  If passing an exam is on your agenda, great!  We can help you with that.  But our primary focus always has and always will be to help clients to learn the material in a way that is going to make them better at their job.  Our team uses other means of knowledge transference, ones that add value to the experience, ones that prepare your staff not only for exams and certification, but also for the real world. By immersing our clients in intensive, hands-on training we are confident that they will gather the knowledge needed to succeed.

Our team members come to you as established, highly experienced networking and information security professionals whose IT skills are rivaled only by their affinity for presenting complex material in an engaging and readily understandable way.  We have dynamic, innovative facilitators with the ability to illustrate concepts using real-world examples, vivid analogy and personal anecdotes. The quality of training provided by ITdojo is the single most important aspect of our business and each member of our team has a vested interest in making sure that you and the members of your team get the skills and information needed to be successful.  The commitment we have to our clients is personal. We are strong believers that our success depends on theirs. Because of this, our instruction staff is here for you and your team before, during and after class.

Scores of government agencies, contractors and large corporations from all over rely on ITdojo to provide their personnel with the skills needed to succeed.  Click here to check out some testimonials. Complementing our instructor-led training here in Virginia Beach, we also offer our clients access to Live Remote Training as well as bringing instructors on-site to our clients’ facilities.  There is no substitute for instructor-led training but if learning at your own pace works for you we can help with that, too.  We offer a full-complement of self-paced training options.

We’re serious about networking and information security.

We are serious about helping you fortify your information systems.  As professional trainers and experienced network consultants we are focused on helping you achieve your goals in a way that is relevant and applicable to your environment. Our technical offerings are hands-on with live equipment.   The closer your learning experience is to the real-world, the more valuable and useful your end-result will be.  You are invited to stop by and check out our lab environment. We are near all the major military installations in Hampton Roads and are less than 45 minutes from Williamsburg. Travel time from Newport News, Hampton, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Portsmouth, and Norfolk is less than 30 minutes from even the farthest points.

What else can you expect when you attend training at ITdojo?

  • Small seminar sizes.  Small is good.  Our exceptional instruction staff is available to each participant before, during and after class to deliver personalized attention.  We all come to class with different levels of knowledge and we progress at different rates.  By keeping our seminar sizes as small as possible we are able to guarantee that you and your staff get the focused attention needed to be successful.  Big seminars turn into lectures with little opportunity for questions and deep exploration of the technology.  We want you to be able to ask questions and truly learn from your trainer.
  • Equipment, equipment and even more equipment.  Unlike many training providers we invest considerable sums of money in hardware to ensure that each participant has as much hands-on experience as possible.  Our competitors either don’t have the equipment or require your staff to double (or triple) up with other participants.  Watching other people work with equipment isn’t a good way to learn.  In order to really learn you have to do it yourself!  That’s our philosophy and our commitment to you!
