      Hello,

      I’ve taken onsite instructor lead SANS courses in the past and I’m thinking about taking my first vLIVE course. Has anyone ever taken a vLIVE course and would you recomend it?

      Thanks,

      matt

      I’ve taken both. Each format has its strengths and weaknesses.

      Live pros:

      • Networking opportunities
      • One on one access to the instructor
      • Natural language/body language
      • SANS @Night and other extracurricular activities

      Live cons:

      • The most expensive way to train
      • Time away from your family
      • Lost productivity at work
      • The sheer amount of information thrown at you in 6 days’ time

      vLive pros:

      • Slow pace fosters more in depth understanding
      • Feeling of disconnectedness seems to make the students more willing to work together
      • Less expensive with no travel costs

      vLive cons:

      • Evenings are shot on nights of the class
      • Less networking opportunities…there’s only one class
      • Some topics can feel disjointed with the shorter class meetings

      Edit: I meant to say that I would highly recommend the vLive format. I was weary at first, but after about week 1 I decided I really liked it!

      Ziggy,

      Thanks for detailed response. I’m leaning towards the vLIVE right now.
