Jeremy Martin - Quotes from his students


“I was blown away by the instructor’s knowledge and expertise. I came here knowing very little about pen testing and white hat hacking...and have been subjected to an amazing amount of information that was easy to understand and delivered in such a way that I could get it. I mean, I could grasp the concepts, if I had a question he always had the answer, and I have been very pleased with this class. Thank you. Would recommend to anyone thinking about being a pen tester.”

Finally, he was very approachable and didn't hesitate to take on any questions had by any member of the class. It is evident that his main goal is that everyone understands and is confident in the application of that knowledge.

I would like very much to take another course led by him."
