Our clients say

"Leo was a great instructor. Very knowledgeable and well spoken enough to make some of the driest material palatable. It wasn’t until I started asking questions that I realized somehow I knew the answers. Thank you!

Systems Administrator, Tampa, FL
The instructor was excellent and ranks tops in the 100+ classes that I have taken over my 21 years in the field. He did a great job of teaching, answering questions and working through the labs. He made himself very available to the students and responded to e-mail questions in a very timely manner. I would give him an A+. The training course and lab were great.

Just wanted to follow up and say thanks. I not only passed the CISSO, but sat for the CISSP on Friday and passed that as well. There were definitely a few items during this week of training that helped outside of my self-study. Now on to the final step of endorsement!
