Customer Testimonials

The best class I have ever attended in my 24 years at IRS. I would gladly take another Vanguard course any time! The Vanguard professionals are amazing; not only extremely knowledgeable, but friendly, outgoing and always helpful. I learned more in this class than any other class I have taken in cyber security in the 9 years I have been there.

Doug Purcell, IRS

This class was informative and provided me with an effective way to do my job. Thank you.

John Amaral, Technical Officer, UBS

Vanguard, as a company, creates a personal relationship with its training customers, which is unheard of in the industry. Having them ensure students’ needs and concerns are met, meeting staff at various levels all the way to the CEO/CFO/Acting CEO.

Tim Wong, State of CA DTS

I want to start out by saying this class was by far the best one I have ever taken. I actually took this course seven to eight years ago and learned nothing. My shop will be getting RACF back and I will be one of about 10 people who will have to provision it. I feel totally sure that with the training I have now (because of this class), I will not have any trouble doing my job. I’ve been working with ACF2 for about 15 years, and now I can say I know how to secure RACF. Thank you so much to the entire staff at Vanguard. I had a great time.

Darryl Tanner, Sr. Security Analyst, Wellpoint

The course was very helpful in understanding the subject matter. The hands-on experience was extremely useful, compared to other classes that I have had that did not have a hands-on option. The instructor was communicative, and did not just read from a text book, which I have had happen before.

Charmaine Gaines, Security Administrator, IRS

This course was very effective and the hands-on labs were very useful and assisted in driving the objectives home for me.

Maura Iler, HDI Federal Center

The instructor made the class very fun and easy to follow. Amazing how a complex class was fun and easy to learn. I got a lot out of this class. Looking forward to the next one.

Gil Botello, Security Analyst Head, American Honda Motors

The best RACF class I’ve ever taken! The instructor expertly explained the advanced features of RACF in a manner that was easy to understand. I will be able to use what I learned immediately in my job.
