Here's what SANS alumni have said about the value of SANS training:

"This is one of the best courses I have had to date, and I feel like I have thousands of things to take back to my job." - Ryan Spencer, Reed Elsevier Inc.

"We heard a lot of stories from history and experience, so perfect there! I just want to say, stories (if funny even better) are the best experience and take away for me at live training!" - Christoph Eckstein, SAMA PARTNERS Business Solutions GmbH

"SEC504 should be taken by anyone in your company that has anything to do with security. This course is especially valuable for sys admins as well as security personnel." - Karl Findorff, Xavier University of Louisiana

"This course taught me to truly focus on the methodology while performing a pen test. During the Capture the Flag event, I realized how much time can be wasted if you fail to respect your methodology." - Sean Rosado, RavenEye

For your accommodations our campus is the, Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. From the hotel's website: "Enjoy staying a few miles from Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, the National Aquarium, National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center, National Zoo, and historic monuments like Iwo Jima Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and the Washington Monument. The hotel is steps away from world-class shopping at Tysons Corner Center and the Galleria Mall, and major corporate headquarters are minutes away from the hotel."
