SANS vLive allows you to attend SANS courses from the convenience of your home or office.

Simply log in at the scheduled times and join your instructor and classmates in an interactive virtual classroom. Classes typically meet two evenings a week for five or six weeks. No other SANS training format gives you as much time with our top instructors!

  • Engaging – vLive classes are live and interactive, allowing you to ask questions and share experiences with your instructor and classmates.
  • Cost-Effective – You can save thousands of dollars on travel costs, making vLive an ideal solution for students with limited training budgets or travel bans.
  • Repeatable – vLive classes are recorded and placed in an online archive in case you miss a session or just wish to view the material again at a later date.
  • Complete – You will receive the same books and course materials that conference students receive.


  • Take SANS’ Top Courses from SANS’ Top Instructors.
  • Classes meet online in a virtual classroom.

    Congrats SephStorm!

    Very well deserved. You’ve won 2 of the 4 giveaways for 2014 :)

    You took SEC560 few weeks back and have your next SANS course picked out.

    Which one will you be taking on next?

    Yeah, I’m debating between 610 GREM and 408 GCFE. I’ve never done Forensics, but I really want to do malware analysis.
