One of the coolest parts about this course (CEH) was that lectures were recorded daily, so you could make up any missed time without a lot of headache or heartache. I just took the Certified Ethical Hacker test, and I’m pleased to say that I passed on the first try.

Ron Marx

I took StormWind classes and labs- absolutely OUTSTANDING! I did those just prior to going for my certification exam and passed it with a 923 out of 1000.

The course was excellent. Ryan was great at breaking down heavy concepts into real-world application. I would definitely recommend this style of learning!
