Why Choose the Mentor Program?
The Mentor Program,, consists of small,
locally run, 10 week classes utilizing the same great SANS courseware
presented at the larger conferences. This unique program opens SANS
training up to students with family or work commitments necessitating a
more flexible option. Mentored students report several major benefits
of this format including: cost savings, time to digest the material,
convenient evening classes, small groups, a Mentor "coach", and
community networking.
COST SAVINGS: Is the slowing economy resulting in reduced training
budgets? With the SANS Mentor program, you save 25% off the regular
SANS tuition fee with the ability to save even more with group discounts
(see below). No need to spend money on travel and living expenses or
spend a week away from the family.
PACED STUDY: Take 10 weeks to work through and understand the material.
Past students report that the slower pace allows them to absorb and
apply the information. Each session provides you the opportunity to
apply the materials the next day when you return to the office!
EVENING CLASSES: The Mentor program provides a method for learning the
SANS materials and working towards a GIAC certification without taking
time off from work.
COMMUNITY NETWORKING: The Mentor program allows you to work with local
security professionals in an open discussion format. This community
networking has been identified by students as a major benefit of the
Mentor program.
One recent Mentor student commented, "I thought that the class was
great. I would consider taking another SANS Mentor Program class. It
was much more convenient than traveling and I had the ability to review
material at my own pace." Clint Barnett - Computer & Information
