Buzz was an outstanding instructor and presented the information in a very understandable and memorable format. I could not have asked for a better classroom experience.

I would highly recommend attending a Training Camp class to increase your knowledge on a specific subject or make yourself more marketable by validating your knowledge.
Chris Pettingill MEI
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.
TS Comcast
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!
