Bethesda, MD - October 28, 2014 - SANS Online Training announces a special opportunity to receive a new MacBook Air laptop, a Toshiba Portege Z30 laptop, or an $800 discount on online courses with SANS' top-rated cyber security training. This special offer runs through December 3rd and can be used to purchase any of the 30 qualifying SANS OnDemand or vLive courses.

In addition to this special registration offer, the 2015 vLive course schedule has also been released. Students can now explore and register for a long list of live, online courses, as well as the complete library of self-paced OnDemand courses, in order to find the best training option for them.

SANS computer security courses are developed by industry leaders in numerous fields, including network security, forensics, audit, security leadership, and application security. Courses are taught by real-world practitioners who are the best at ensuring students not only learn the material, but that they can apply it immediately to their work.

OnDemand courses allow students to learn at their own pace, spend extra time on complex principles, reinforce concepts with quizzes, and repeat lab exercises - all of which increases retention of the course material.

vLive courses allow students to log in at the scheduled times and join SANS' top instructors and classmates in an interactive virtual classroom. Classes typically meet two evenings a week for five or six weeks. OnDemand and vLive courses are ideal for organizations whose staff can't travel long distances or who can't take time out of their schedule to attend a week long course.

"I hold three GIAC certifications, have attended multiple classes, and nothing prepares me to do my job better than SANS Online Training, " stated Rick Whitmore, University of Kansas.
