SANS training is well known for being relevant and pragmatic. Our award-winning faculty (SC Magazine's Best Profession Training for 2014) has proven they understand the challenges you face on a daily basis. Their real-world experience increases the practical value of the course material. Here is what 2013 attendees had to say about their SANS training experience:
"Both the Instructor, Paul Henry, and the facilitator went above and beyond to make this a pleasant experience." - Michael Watson, Dominion
"FOR408 is a great class, a lot of hands on training. No question goes unanswered." - Michael Joudeh, BDO
"The MGT512 course material and the instructor were top notch. SANS delivers a quality product every time." - Charles Brown III, MCSF-Blount Island
"SANS instructors are the best in the IT world. Their field knowledge plus delivery makes SANS the premier certification organization." - Dave Dalton, Sentara Healthcare
"This information presented in SEC504 is valuable for my understanding of the exploits I deal with daily in the military." - Lynnella Artimisi, USN
Our campus for this event, the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront, is ten seconds from the Virginia Beach boardwalk and ocean front and is right next to Neptune's Park and the Shoppes at 31 Ocean. A discounted room rate of $199 S/D is available to SANS students until midnight on August 4th, but space is limited so book early!
The hotel is right on the north end of one of America's favorite boardwalks, constructed in 1888 and a favorite during Victorian times. The current version is three miles long and perfect for strolling, biking, or rollerblading. The boardwalk is lined with shops and restaurants with plenty of ramps to get to the beach. Picture 11 top-rated golf courses, off-shore fishing opportunities where Virginia Beach is known as the "Fish highway," children's activities for both teens and younger children (including a Where the Wild Things Are attraction), and that is Virginia Beach! Virginia Beach is also home to the Virginia Aquarium which features the fish of the Chesapeake Bay area and much more including komodo dragons and whale watching boat trips! Whether you enjoy kayaking, swimming, bird watching, hiking, fishing, playing golf or shopping and dining, Virginia Beach has it all. What a great location for your training!
