The instructor was very knowledgeable, and was able to explain complicated technologies in a way that was easy to comprehend. I was given everything I needed to learn and complete my course with confidence.

- Travis Drennan

I had an above-average instructor. Not only did he instruct, he mentored us with real-world experience. The knowledge he had of the applications was beyond comprehensible. Outstanding!

- Weston Flowers

Our instructor displayed exceptional knowledge and expertise with the material he was teaching. He was very patient with the class, who did not have a lot of experience with material being covered.

- Dale Wamsley

Instructor was very knowledgeable in all subjects of the course and tailored his lessons and labs to the student's weaknesses. Very eager to help students in any way he can.

- Scott Masury

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.
