Excellent! Our instructor had a vast background and related the materials to real life. Much better than just teaching the materials to pass an exam ... but he did that as well. He went out of his way in class. The extra materials really benefited us when we returned to our real jobs! Great experience!

John Peck, EPA

The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense, and explained it in real world scenarios that were able to be understood.

Erik Heiss, United States Air Force

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.
