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.

I recommend taking this boot camp with Training Camp. The instructor was excellent, answered any questions that came up, discussed the topics thoroughly and was clear about the subject matter we were to cover.

A must stop-by resort before any certification test. Teachers teach you something for life, rather than only for certification.

Training camp got me up to speed on the domains that I hadn't had tons of experience and in the end this made all the difference to ensure I attained my certification.

The Training Camp provided a great training environment for my Security+ certification. Feeding me information and knowledge through a fire hose was exactly what was needed for my study style. I will definitely consider Training Camp in the future.
