A Testimonial From Earnsest Valle -
"My interest in taking the Certified Information Systems Auditor class was to gain new IT Security Audit knowledge and skills. I worked hard in class and received many times the return on effort. Our instructor, David Cannon made the class very helpful in understanding real-life IT audits, including: IT audit procedures, systems vulnerabilities, remediation protocols, secure builds, CISA/ISO Compliance, separation of duties, IT audit reference sources and future trends. The class was highly interactive, well-paced, respectful and intellectually stimulating. As an employer, I feel confident with the caliber of students coming out of ACC's Cyber Security classes based upon my first-hand experience. As a senior employee, these classes are refreshing, challenging and help me stay current with security and audit practices. I strongly recommend this class to keep your knowledge and skills sharp within Austin technology hiring marketplace."
A Testimonial From Earnest Valle -
"I'm returning back to evening classes to learn IT Security concepts and was very satisfied with completing the Security + class taught by Dixon Trietsch. He presented complex security information in simple, understandable language with real-life examples. Dixon maintained our enthusiasm by having current IT Security news items that really impressed upon us the importance of IT security and he shared insights on how we as IT Security professionals should mitigate these risks. Our class was interactive, sharing real-life circumstances and insightful. Dixon spoke clearly and anticipated when we needed further clarity on concepts. Dixon was able to put in place measures for my continued class reading and exercises during the time I needed for family necessities (I'm really grateful for his accommodation). Completing this IT Security foundation class allows me to move forward with more challenging IT Security concepts with greater confidence. I recommend this foundation class for future IT Security professionals, realizing that the amount of studying put into the class will be greatly rewarded afterwards when taking the Sec+ exam. I've now passed my CISA exam based upon this and other ITSY classes received at ACC-Continuing Education programs."
A Testimonial From Joseph (Joey) Thompson -
"I just wanted to let you all know I took the CISSP exam this past Thursday, April 13, and I am proud to report I passed! I also wanted to take a minute to thank you all for your time and expertise. The class is very well put together and level of knowledge and experience you all shared not only prepared me to take the exam but helped me be a better IT security professional. The resources you shared alone made the class worthwhile, and the experiences and instruction really got me excited that I was heading down the right career path in the wide world of technology."
A Testimonial From Larry J. Ward Jr. -
"I was in the Security Certification Preparation for CISSP class. I tested on June 9th in San Antonio and... I PASSED! It was a GREAT class and every instructor was very informative and helpful. I knew the drive from San Antonio and back every Tues and Thurs would be worth it."
