The instructor was amazing! His energy level seemed to power the light board at times. The information was well organized, concise, and in-depth during our class.

CyberVista CISM Courses are great for the working professional. You can take the classes with you in the car, office, or from the house. When taking the course from a computer, you can interact with the instructor, ask questions, chat with your classmates and CyberVista provide breaks as if you were sitting in an actual classroom.
Expect homework. When you start the class you will take a pretest to assess your current skills, every week you will complete a test, and you will have both a midterm and a final exam. CyberVista wants each student to succeed and provides supplemental learning material on areas former students have struggled with learning. Oh and don’t forget the homework which is videos covering the same topics as the course presented in a slightly different way to help the material stick. CyberVista Courses are the most realistic class you can take and still be in the comfort of your own home.
I recently completed the online CISM course offered through Cybervista. I have had experience taking other courses through the government, academic institutions and other large international vendors and I can emphatically say that I have not been better prepared or more confident in taking an associated certification than with the Cybervista program.
The instructor was not only knowledgeable, but possessed the ability to convey the information in academic terms and from personal experiences. The content was well organized and thorough. The books were designed to really aid the student in putting the pieces together. The virtual classroom was cutting edge and first rate technology. Real time feedback, real time question and answers and quizzes. The staff had respect for those in the class who had other experiences and solicited others opinions.. I don’t see myself attending any other training at this point other than Cybervista.
