What Students Say About Their SANS Training Experience

The best part of SANS training is the absolute knowledge of the instructors. They bring real-world examples to the forefront and have their thumb on the pulse of current tactics used by attackers.

The labs are giving me a chance to see the course content first hand and interact with it. It's doing a good job of letting me play with it and really seeing how the tools and methodologies work.

I love OnDemand. My employer doesn't always have the funds available to send me to a live course and it has tons of material to digest, so being able to go at my own pace really helped."

Having an SME instructor with tons of real-world experience makes the course material easy to digest, and the Live Online platform is the best platform I've experienced!

Summits are a great way to meet and talk to the trail blazers; the individuals who each in their own way help shine a light for the rest of the community.

Private Training has been advantageous for our security training. The instructors have been great and the students enjoy being in class with colleagues that share concerns and duties for ongoing security projects.
