SANS offers the ultimate in quality instruction and thoughtful curriculum development. I learned so much this week and can't wait to review and apply what I learned.

The instruction at SANS is top-notch. I have been to several SANS training courses and they never disappoint. The instructors bring real life experiences and show the students how the material can be applied.

Nobody else in the industry is as comprehensive as SANS or as up-to-date and knowledgeable. If you want to learn how to do your job right, I don’t think there's any better training out there right now.

The virtual online class recording that is made available is VERY HELPFUL. It helps to revisit the class content and solidify the concepts, lab walkthroughs, and learnings from the class.

SANS Live Online is a smooth delivery platform with really good video and audio quality. The Slack channel for live chat was also very useful and engaging.
