- Vincent Chapman
US Army

I really enjoyed it. We moved at a good pace with an appropriate amount of breaks. The instructor obviously knew his stuff; and he gave good real world examples of the course material.

- Patrick Crow
ASM Research

I would truly recommend this training to others.

- Ada Jones
US Army - Fort Campbell, KY

Great! Our instructor really knew his stuff based on documentation and experience!

- Anwar Shahid - CAP
Gunter AFB

Good materials. All relevant topics covered in an easy to understand manner. Very experienced and knowledgeable instructor, knew his stuff.

- Joseph Elbaum
Internal Revenue Service

The instructor had an excellent demeanor and candor, very knowledgable about IT industry in general and many different fields in specific.

- Jose Rengel

Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.

- Byron Caswell

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.

- Craig Calder

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!

- Timothy Dalhouse
Spectrum Training

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.

- Student
National Institutes of Health

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
Georgia Tech Research Institute

Instructor was to the point, and stayed on topic. Appreciated that he doesn't get led off tangents by students questions.

- Mark Yu
