Chris Soule, Rocky Gap Resort
An excellent instructor that obviously knows the material by heart. He was always clear and concise in his explanations and would break it down if anyone in the class didn’t quite get how something worked. He is by far one of my favorite instructors ever, even though I only spent seven days with him.
Jeffrey McGill, TIC Gums, Inc.
My instructor was excellent. He made sure that I not only knew the information in order to pass my exams, he took it upon himself to teach us real-world knowledge that is necessary to do my job today.
Sylvia Swinson, Texeltek
Very impressed with Infosec. My instructor did a great job delivering the information strategically and in a way for all to understand. I would definitely take another class/certification prep course.
