See CAP Review & Testimonials:

The instructor was very knowledgable of the subject, very high energy, and kept it interesting. Didn't want the course to end, so that I could continue to learn from him and his expertise on the subject.

- April Lamadine
TASC

Outstanding Instructor. Real world experience combined with lesson materials helped this instructor provide in depth understanding of the material. I passed the CAP exam the following day. I could not have accomplished this without the confidence bestowed by the instruction and reveiw.

The instructor is very knowledgeable, with not only the course material, but with latest industry information and guidance.

- Harl Page
Dept of Homeland Security

great instructor! gave a lot of real world examples and was able to answer every question.

- Vincent Chapman
US Army

My instructor had an amazing, well rounded knowledge of both the subject matter and the industry. At first I was concerned that our materials were going to be just a bunch of slides, but once we started using it, the instructor did a lot more than just read slides, and the book was a good place to take notes. Great experience.

- Mark Puchala
USAID

The instructor was very knowledgeable about the pen testing and ethical hacking. He was great in delivering the lectures, lab and was very helpful in having us complete the capture the flag exercises. In addition, he provided valuable insight about security in general and pen testing in particular.

- Tijan Drammeh
University of Maryland University College

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
Scitor

A great instructor, very intelligent and well spoken and excellent course materials.

- Jeff Clemmons
Blood Systems

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

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

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

Instructor was very intelligent and had lots of experience to draw on, outside of the written paterial that made it more interesting. I was very pleased with him.
