Early Warning

I had a terrific instructor. His depth of knowledge was clearly evident. He approached each question raised by the students not only to answer, but to be sure the student understood the answer.

- John Hollan - AEH

There are many of us entering these classes that are managers and not programmers. The step-by-step is very helpful for those that don't know Linux or C as well.

- Marc Henscheid - AEH

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

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

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

- Jeff Clemmons
Blood Systems

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.
