SANS training, if not the best, is one of the best in the industry. I love everything about this class, labs, and material. I hope to take other SANS classes after this.

Despite being new to the world of cyber security, this course has helped build upon and reaffirm my knowledge. I felt as though SANS truly values my development.

Matthew Schmolke

The instructor’s knowledge and teaching style is excellent and the content is pitched perfectly. I will be able to transfer the skills I’ve learned here into my daily work.

The entire SANS Live Online package - Slack, GoToTraining, VM's, tools, etc - are woven together to make this as close to live training as possible, and have been able to remain engaged throughout the day.
Andrea Doherty
- Dell Technologies
I'd recommend OnDemand as a good learning experience; you can train when you have free time. The instructor was able to relate real life scenarios and the quizzes help with self assessment.
Sandeep Maruge
Fantastic, passionate & engaging! The instructor supplemented the course content with experience related scenarios, improving the learning experience and making it extremely interesting.
