SANS training is well-known for being relevant and pragmatic. Our award-winning faculty has proven they understand the challenges you face on a daily basis. Their real-world experience increases the practical value of the course material. Here is what 2010 attendees had to say:
"I am constantly impressed by the quality of the instructors. Their passion towards their classes is infectious."

Virginia Beach is home to the Virginia Aquarium which features the fish of the Chesapeake Bay area and much more including komodo dragons and whale watching boat trips! Whether you enjoy kayaking, swimming, bird watching, hiking, fishing, playing golf or shopping and dining, Virginia Beach has it all. The hotel is right on the north end of one of America's favorite Boardwalks, constructed in 1888 and a favorite during Victorian times. The current version is three miles long and perfect for strolling, biking, or rollerblading. The Boardwalk is lined with shops and restaurants with plenty of ramps to get to the beach. Picture 11 top-rated golf courses, off-shore fishing opportunities where Virginia Beach is known as the Fish highway, children's activities for both teens and younger children (including a Where the Wild Things Are attraction), and that is Virginia Beach! What a great location for your training!
"Where else could you get a compressed course from a fun instructor? Here at SANS, I'm coming back!"
