SANS Training Events

For over twenty-five years, SANS Training has been regarded as the best cyber security and information technology training available.

Our cyber security Training Events are:

  • An opportunity to take an intensive, practical and up-to-date SANS Course.
  • Led by SANS Instructors - Respected real-world experts and inspiring teachers.
  • Designed to make learning efficient - Classes are hands-on and focus on honing deployable skills.
  • Supported by high-quality courseware - Students take away a library of books, printed resources, tools and software.
  • Designed to offer networking opportunities - additional educational and social events are often included.

Over the years we've discovered a great deal about security training, and how people learn.

SANS is trusted by FTSE 100 companies, global enterprises, charities and governments to train their security teams, managers and boards.

Hands On Learning At Training Events

SANS Events typically run for six days. Some events are longer and offer the option to take more than one course across a two-week period. All events are designed to be intensive and incredibly thorough.

By attending a Training Event that runs for multiple days, students are immersed completely in the subject. There are no distractions. SANS IT security events are a highly accelerated way to learn.

Our Instructors take time to build lessons where the information can be absorbed efficiently, and retained reliably. Meet an Instructor and learn face-to-face industry best practice.

Built To Be Remembered

Classes often revolve around learning skills and then putting them to work immediately. With the support of an experienced SANS Instructor, students improve their hands-on experience and rehearse what they've learned.

Depending upon the curriculum chosen, students might find themselves sniffing network traffic, prying open malware payloads, reverse engineering viruses, or conducting a forensic analysis of a hard disk image.

At SANS Training, the tasks, challenges and scenarios presented are directly relevant to the current threat landscape. As new vectors, threats and technologies emerge, so SANS updates its curricula.


The Training Event classroom experience is supplemented with high-quality courseware. Students generally receive a collection of textbooks and other resources. These can include crib sheets, handouts, CDs, DVDs, disk images, USB keys, copies of software tools, and posters.


SANS Training Events take place in many cities across Europe, Middle East and Africa as well as the world.

SANS carefully choose the training venues we use. They are all of the highest quality and, fit for an enjoyable learning experience.

During all Training Events SANS provide refreshments at least twice a day as well as a buffet lunch.


Training Events provide the opportunity to socialise and network with friends, colleagues, peers and SANS personnel. Events often feature free evening functions, SANS@Night talks and NetWars tournaments.


Many courses are aligned with GIAC cyber security certification. GIAC certifications are recognised, respected and actively sought by enterprises, governments and military organisations across the world. That's because a GIAC certification proves the holder has achieved the highest grade of knowledge, and possesses the sharpest cyber security skills.

GIAC certifications are exam based. Students can add a GIAC certification attempt at a discounted rate when registering for a SANS Training Event.
