"My experience with Learning Tree International has been nothing less than superior. I really appreciate all the support and guidance I received from my training advisors and my instructor for the CompTIA Security+ exam prep course. Because of that course I am now CompTIA Security+ Certified. I used my After-Course Instructor Coaching benefit to get a better idea about what areas of security would benefit most from my Security+ Certification while capitalizing on my past IT experience. Again, I want to say "Thank You" to the entire Learning Tree Family."
