Student Reviews

(ISC)² CAP® Training Boot Camp

The course was extremely helpful and provided exactly what we needed to know in order to successfully navigate the exam. Without this I am not confident I would have passed.

Very impressed with Infosec. My instructor did a great job delivering the information strategically and in a way for all to understand. I would definitely take another class/certification prep course.

The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense, and explained it in real world scenarios that were able to be understood.
