3. How do you find the training environment
The course had a lot to keep you attentive and interested. However, it was too short for the subjects being addressed. I know it's supposed to be be a Basic Course, but it left too much to teach/do in an extremely short span of time.

1. Reduce the subjects to discuss to just broad topics. Some topics can be in advanced Cyber Security;
2. Extend the course to two days. (Posted on 1/29/2018)
