Lee Brand. - CompTIA Security+ Certification (3 days) (29/8/2012 to 31/8/2012)
"The training course has proven useful. It makes it easier to learn from the book when you have been given an overview and an explanation about the overall subjects. You can then privately review and learn more about the areas that you are not too sure about.
I would recommend the course to people who feel that they would thrive off the immersion environment. Being away from work and even family/friends can prove useful to fully concentrate. Also, the long days arent as bad as they sound!"

The goal of this three-day accelerated course is to provide IT professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to demonstrate a broad knowledge of security concerns and perform day-to-day security functions.
Incorporating a comprehensive range of security knowledge areas, Security+ was developed with input from industry, government, academia and front-line practitioners.
This certification is designed for professionals with a background in computers and networking. The typical Security+ Firebrand Training candidate will be working in a network or system administration position, or be moving into such a position upon entering the workforce after an undergraduate degree program.
For the information technology professional, Security+ certification training delivers a foundational proficiency in the network security arena. Security+ Certificants are better able and positioned to support small and medium-sized organizations that are at increased risk of cyber crime and other forms of security-related threats.
Certificants may now apply the CompTIA Security+ certification towards the Microsoft MCSA and MCSE Security designations.
Neither technologies nor policies alone offer effective protection against theft and destruction of intellectual property. So, what's your defence? Knowledge.

Maintain the integrity of your organization's communications, infrastructure and operations. Certify your IT workforce today.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
