SANS In-Person Training to Return to Select Locations in July

Bethesda, Md. — May 18, 2021 — SANS Institute, the largest provider of cybersecurity training and certification in the world, is pleased to announce its return to In-Person training, after more than a year of training 100% online. Starting in July, SANS will offer limited-seating In-Person training events at select locations in Europe, Middle East, North America and the United Kingdom.

Limited seating for In-Person events will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. With the health and wellbeing of students, faculty, and staff in mind, SANS is working closely with all event venues to apply appropriate safety measures for In-Person attendees. Specific details on safety measures for each venue can be found on the individual event pages on the SANS website.

“With cybersecurity events making headlines worldwide over the past few weeks, SANS training has never been in more demand as practitioners seek the skills they need to protect and defend their networks,” says Rob Lee, Chief Curriculum Director and Faculty Lead at SANS Institute.

“Returning to In-Person training provides more options to SANS students. While SANS offers best-in-class online training through our OnDemand and Live Online platforms, there are those who prefer to learn in-person and this option is for them. SANS is now offering In-Person training at multiple events this year alongside our other offerings, giving everyone the opportunity to gain the skills they want in the setting that is best for them.”

In North America, In-Person training will be offered at the following event locations:

  • Washington, DC | July 12-17
  • Austin, TX | July 26-31
  • Crystal City, VA | August 9-14
  • San Antonio, TX | August 16-21
  • Virginia Beach, VA | August 23-28

Students in the EMEA region who are ready to return to a classroom setting will have the opportunity to do so at training events located in London, Amsterdam, and Zurich, taking place July through September. Students in the Asia Pacific region will continue to find their In-Person and in-Person Live-Stream events on

In addition to its OnDemand training available to customers 24/7, SANS will continue to offer Live Online events with interactive, live-stream cybersecurity training delivered directly from world-renowned faculty. Whether students train OnDemand or attend In-Person or Live Online, they will receive high-quality cybersecurity training they can use immediately.
