Amazing experience! The methods of teaching the material are right on spot. The presentation of the material made it easy for everyone in class to understand and the instructor’s knowledge and practical experience supported all aspects of the training.

Infosec clearly cared that all participants learn the course material. Our instructor could pick up on the differences between the participants, e.g., learning style, and adjust his interaction to best communicate the material to all participants. He was diligent about making sure no one “got left behind.” I could not imagine a better class!
