    The Training Camp was EXTREMELY helpful in making sure that the exams were passed. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with.
    Jonathan Youngson Spalding
    I would highly recommend using Training Camp for this type of training but be prepared to work hard and do your prep work before the training because it is a very hard exam with a very wide area of knowledge being tested.

    Although the course material is tough and sometimes seems daunting the instructors are effective in getting through it. The lectures seem to flow very well and not be to overwhelming. I and all my classmates were extremely happy.

    Rich Hardt NYCHPD
    The Training Camp experience was well organized and super-informative. The instructor's experience and ability to communicate made the training worth more than it's weight in gold! I highly recommend the CISSP course at Training Camp!

    CISSP instructor Ross Everett-knowledgeable, thorough and very easily understood. The location of class room was great in the metro D.C. Area. Hotel package was a fantastic deal. Going to return for cloud certs in no time.
    Jia Hedman Leidos
    I believe self-study would have been much much harder to comprehend the information and pass the test on a first try. My colleagues who self-studied flunked the first time they took it. I passed the first time after attending the boot camp.
