How The Courses Work

Live Classes: Each live course meets twice a week for ~6 weeks. We meet using webcasting software and live chat, presenting demonstrations, graphics, and explanations. We answer dozens of questions every class that helps you get the most out of each class. In IPVM classes, you are able and encouraged to interact to get the most out of it.

Course Readings: Each course includes ~300 pages of readings. These readings are based on our ongoing research and testing of security products to ensure that you learn what is current, which is critical given the ongoing changes in technology.
