What attendees say about their SANS training experience:

“I'm blown away at the effectiveness and ease of the Live Online platform. I was concerned based on previous online training experience, but this is well done!” - Robin A., US Federal Agency

“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.” - Ryan Moeller, Eureka Strategic Consulting

"I have attended in-person SANS training courses and I would say overall the Live Online experience works really well and was actually better for the hands-on labs as far as being able to use a larger monitor and the environment." - Don Young, Virginia529
