I was wondering if there is any course focused on encryption/decryption techniques and methods. Something like practically applying BitLocker, EFS, SSL, for Windows. I am sure there would be similar services available for Linux/Unix platform as well. I googled it but couldn’t find much. Please share if you have additional information.
Thanks so much!

The SANS Securing Unix and Windows courses would likely cover these topics:
You might also find these books to be useful:

Your recommendations look solid – no doubt. I was envisioning something like Encryption/Decryption as a course that covers all widely implemented platforms into one umbrella. You know there is cost factor too 🙂

Not that I’m aware of. Encryption implementation is usually product/OS-specific (even though most of the algorithms used are standard), so that topic is included as a subset of more general courses. Security+ and/or SSCP might cover the topics you’re interested in as well.
MIT OpenCourseware also has some cryptography courses, but that’s more math/CSci, and I don’t think that’s what you’re looking for: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/#electrical-engineering-and-computer-science
You can learn a lot of this simply by doing research online. For example, MS Technet is going to cover all those items for Microsoft/Windows platforms.

There is a course launched by standford university online, it has been delayed which is suppose to start by feb…Its a cryptography course….I remember seeing the link in EH.net too….
try it…its free……

Free online Stanford classes started on March 12th, you can enroll here – http://www.coursera.org/
There is some paid course offered by Stanford –
