The information provided by these classes served to clarify many things that I was uncertain about. In all this class has improved my skills not just executing the tasks intended, but also explaining the tasks and duties required to achieve a successful result to others. I have no doubt that If everyone working in the security field took these courses, the companies that employed them would benefit greatly.
