SANS Training Event Instructors

Receive classroom cyber security training from a global expert SANS Instructor. Expect high-value, practical IT security skills.

To date there are over 125,000 SANS alumni. SANS' success and growth can be attributed, in part, to the quality and uniqueness of our Instructors.

SANS Instructors are expertly skilled cyber security practitioners and teachers. Only two or three new Instructors are welcomed into the SANS family each year. To put those figures into context: for every 900 people that apply to become a SANS Instructor, we accept on average - after rigorous interview and training procedures - just one.

Technical Excellence

When it comes to raw technical skills, SANS Instructors are all real-world practitioners. They don't just teach Pen Testing, DFIR and ICS - to name just a few SANS curricula - they also work in the field every day. The majority of our Instructors spend more of their time on-duty and consulting than they do teaching.

Across the roster of SANS Instructors we have people who work for government departments, defence organisations and Fortune 500 companies. In those organisations our Instructors are generally team leaders, directors and CISOs.

Teaching Excellence

SANS Instructors demand and encourage initiative - they challenge what students think, and will challenge the way they think.

Lab exercises, simulations and practice time are all under the supportive wing of a SANS Instructor.

Our Instructors are, in short, great communicators and inspirational teachers.

SANS Training Events are classroom-like training sessions where SANS Instructors lead courses, face-to-face. Training Events immerse students in their course and, with a SANS Instructor on hand, provide an effective and efficient learning environment.
