Every on-demand student gets a 20-minute phone call with an IPVM expert to get started and we offer 'office hours' every week to help any student learning the materials. More information and available courses can be found on the On-Demand overview page.

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.
