Community SANS offers our most popular security courses in a small classroom setting in your own community - most courses have fewer than 25 students. The course material is delivered over a six-day period, just like it is at a larger SANS event, by instructors trained by SANS very best authors and instructors.

Got a group within your own organization? Community SANS offers many flexible options for your groups ranging in size from 3 to 30. Your organization can host or we can utilize a nearby location. In some cases your group may be able to host your own private class with 15 or more students. If you have less than 15 we open the remaining seats to others in your local community which also serves to enrich the networking opportunities so many SANS attendees value at our live training events.
If you hold a GIAC certification and qualify for the SANS Instructor Development program, you may want to consider leading a session within your own organization through our @Work program or taking other steps towards joining the ranks of SANS Certified Instructor.
