Taking advantage of employer-paid training
If my employer will pay for security training, should I take advantage of that support?
Absolutely! No matter what the subject, individuals who take classroom training invariably report a more positive learning
experience, a shorter learning curve and more confidence on the exam than those
who self-study. The problem is the cost -- it's not unusual to pay $400
or more per day in the classroom -- so if your employer is willing to pick
up the tab, do your best to identify and attend the highest-rated class
you can find.
