Without any question, InfoSec has the most gifted individual instructors. Our instructor for this class was both an excellent educator and a premier/world class security expert. He was able to clearly explain and impart to the students, the most complicated security techniques I have ever heard of or imagined. I simply can not find the words to recommend him and Infosec security training more highly.
I have attended 4 othe workshops like this but Infosec's is by far the best one and I already have recommended them to my colleagues and other IT Professionals. I believe that a students learning experience is reflective of the teacher's aptitude and knowledge on the subject and the skill to covey the information. Great instructor, great class.
Course material was more than sufficient to study for the exams. It was properly broken up into pieces that were easy to digest and were focused on exam materials. But the course wasn't just reading from a book, the instructor actually knew the material and taught it as such. He fielded hundreds of questions in the span of the boot camp without breaking a sweat. Highly recommended.
