3-hour remote training modules are a cost-effective alternative to onsite training, but do not include in-depth, hands-on labs to reinforce material. There are two options for remote training:

Online (live) training
Online training is typically scheduled to coincide with new ISO image releases. Live sessions allow students to interact with the instructor via a chat window. Click here to register for Security Onion online training.
