Training Delivery Options

SANS Training is widely regarded as the best cyber security training available globally. We work with many FTSE 100 companies, governments, charities, and international enterprises.

SANS offers expertly designed flexible training. Options include:

  • Training Events - Classroom-like sessions led by a SANS Instructor.
  • Online Training - SANS OnDemand offers great flexibility.
  • Private Training - SANS Training delivered confidentially and exclusively in a HQ or internal training room.

Our menu of security subjects includes: ICS, Cyber Defence, IT Audit, Software Development, Management and Policy, Forensics, and Penetration Testing.

Across each curriculum we offer Core, Advanced and Specialist courses. As a team's makeup changes or a professional's career progresses, SANS has a course available to aid development.

Flexible Cyber Security Training Methods

Taking a one-size fits all approach to training doesn't work. SANS offers several different routes to accessing training.

Training Events

SANS Training Events host several SANS Courses, delivered in a classroom environment and led by SANS Instructors. Courses can run for up to six days consecutively and are held in venues across EMEA regions and the rest of the world.

Training Events are an intensive and efficient way of learning the skills needed to protect organisations, and to aid career progression.

SANS Training is hands on and often built around lab exercises. At Training Events students have the support of our expert Instructors through all practical exercises.

Students receive a selection of courseware designed to supplement their learning. This generally includes a library of expertly written books, posters, handouts and sheets.

Depending upon the course taken, students may receive CDs, DVDs and USB keys - all packed with critical information.

Along with an unrivalled learning experience, SANS Training Events are a great way to make new friends, meet peers and extend professional networks.

Training fees include refreshments, lunch and evening functions (where advertised).

Online Training

SANS embraces technology and the web to deliver training. Our Online Training suits those who may like to study from an office or home environment.

SANS OnDemand provides a flexible, self-study approach to acquiring new skills. Using a computer (Windows, Linux, or Mac), or tablet (Android or iOS), students can access many of SANS' most popular courses.

Upon registration, students receive a selection of resources created to support their learning and development. These include a library of textbooks written by SANS experts and access to online classroom lectures from Instructors. Access to the digital courseware lasts for four months.

Private Training

SANS Private Training brings SANS' security training direct to an office, HQ or training facility. We can train a whole team at once, and in one location.

All students receive the same content, instructions, practical lab experience and theoretical examples as those delivered at a SANS Training Event.

As part of a SANS Private Training programme we provide:

  • A qualified SANS Instructor who is an expert in the required training field.
  • Courseware for every student.
  • Virtualised lab exercises where applicable.

SANS can also simulcast Private Training across multiple locations if needed (an additional charge applies).

SANS Private Training has many benefits including:

  • Focus - Students have a dedicated SANS Instructor for the duration of their training.
  • Organisation specific - The dedicated SANS Instructor is able to address challenges specific to a team, business and enterprise, thus adding significant value.
  • Consistency - The whole security team receive the same experience and learning.
  • High efficiency - A team does not spend additional time traveling and so won't generate any travel, accommodation or subsistence expenses.


SANS Summits are one or two-day events that focus on a current topic relevant to the cyber security community. Our Summits are gatherings of the industry's top-flight experts.

Critical information is presented quickly and efficiently at a SANS Summit. Attendees can expect user panels, debates, short talks from experts, and vender demonstrations.

SANS Summits typically precede or follow a Training Event and complement that learning experience.

GIAC Certification

Many SANS Courses align with GIAC Cyber Security Certifications. Holding a GIAC Certification provides assurance that the holder possesses cyber security skills and knowledge of the highest order.

GIAC Certification attempts are available at a reduced rate when purchased with SANS Training.
