CSF+P Face-to-Face or Live Virtual Training
ALC courses are either 100% in-person or 100% live virtual. That way you get the best training experience.
We do not offer hybrid Cyber Security training whereby some participants are physically in class while others are joining remotely. This invariably results in a lesser training experience. If the trainer focuses on the needs of one group, it is usually at the expense of the other. You can spare yourself the frustration of the hybrid experience with ALC fully-dedicated Cyber Security Foundation+Practitioner training course.
