What attendees say about their SANS training experience:

“SANS Live Online delivers a great instructor/moderator team paired with technology that allows us to participate in this high-speed training remotely. It fosters interaction and participation, and is easy to follow and work along with the instructor.” - Trevor MacTaggart, Fortive

“The combination of the instructor, classmates, written course materials, Live Online format, and the interactive labs was outstanding. I would recommend SANS courses to anyone interested in a challenging and interactive learning atmosphere.” - William N., US Federal Government

"SANS is the premier learning and certification organization. I highly recommend SANS for those who are attempting certification. Whoever chooses a SANS class, upon completion, you will have taken away a solid understanding of the material (applicable to their work environment and not just theory) and be more prepared for the upcoming exam associated with that class." - Anastasio Stefos, Vision Federal Credit Union
