By far the most competitve price we found, which included exam vouchers, hands on labs, practice test and a true Master of Cyber Security concepts as our Instructor. Franklin Mesa was the best trainer I have ever had and i walked out certified on the last day of my CompTIA Security+ certification bootcamp.

The Academy is one of the best educational values for today's job market.  I studied hard and got certified (A+ and N+).  Even though I had no prior IT experience, I now have a good job replacing obsolete computers in hospitals throughout the country.  At my job interview, I just slid my test scores and certification across the table to the interviewer, who is now my boss.  I was hired the next day.  

Not bad for a 65 year old.
