What our students say
“Good instructor! Gives extra detailed information with the slides, and not only reading them. Goes on deeper detail. You notice that it is definitely a security/network instructor, and not an instructor in general.”
“Very engaging trainer, very well prepared and with an excellent technical background. The trainer reveals a great balance between technical deepness and pedagogy.”
“The instructor is perfect and has a very professional character. He knows how to transmit knowledge deeply. It was a good experience. I enjoyed the whole course, from the first day until the last one.”
