Course Overview:

What a great course that is slightly misnamed!  This course may be labeled Security Essentials, but covers much of the subject matter of CISSP!  This course does more than just cover the basics.  TechNow takes the time to give the student hands on labs to exemplify an objective.  Security Essentials Prep Training Course sets the foundation for your security career and sets the expectation of comprehension with more detail than Security+ and more on par with CISSP.

This course provides students skills to take courses that prepare for higher level certifications.

Attendees to TN-929: Security Essentials  Training Course will receive TechNow approved course materials and expert instruction.

Instructor comments: Dave was great! (as always). Wealth of knowledge and a master at customizing course content to match the education level of his students. The class kept entirely in pace with where we were at as a group overall on a day to day basis.

Facilities comments: Facilities were overall really nice. The only complaint is that the hotel / conference center had us move rooms on one occasion, and kicked us out early on two others. I would assume this is due to the last minute location change, so I don't think there is anything anyone could have done better in the situation.

Liked the class?  Then let everyone know!
