A Day in the Life with N2K

At N2K, we know you’re busy and your time is valuable. That’s why we have designed our Live Online training courses to fit into your life. Unlike an intensive, week-long boot camp, our course doesn’t require travel, time away from your work or home, or sleep deprivation.

The course includes both on-demand videos you can watch at your convenience and weekly, live online lesson taught by expert instructors through light board technology.

Morning Commute

Meet Suzie. She’s a network administrator. She wants to advance her career and knows that getting her next cybersecurity certification will not only earn her a salary increase, but also will open the door to a promotion.

Suzie commutes to work. The train delays are testing her patience. Instead of enabling her recent addiction to mobile gaming or streaming an episode of Mr. Robot, she decides to be efficient and cue up a few on-demand videos in preparation for the evening’s live online lesson.  Fifteen minutes later, while the train still hasn’t moved, she understands asymmetric encryption and the different ways to exploit the Three-Way Handshake.

Suzie's Pho


Good news: Suzie made it work. And even made it to lunchtime.

While she is slurping some spicy pho, she takes a 20-question homework quiz to test her knowledge of the material she learned on the train.

She got a 14/20 (in line with the score she needs to pass!) For the questions she didn’t get right, she reviewed detailed explanations and used N2K’s Performance Tracker tool that, in one-click, took her right to the on-demand video that covers the material she missed. Suzie is feeling good about those questions she missed – confident she will get them right the next time around.

Back at Home

She came home and had an hour to relax before the evening’s live online lesson. Suzie gathered everything she needed for the class: her computer, her N2K Lesson Book, her favorite, five colors-in-one, retractable pen so she can take notes by hand, and snacks (it’s pretzels tonight). She clicks into the online classroom and she is ready to go.

One of N2K’s expert instructors takes her through a lesson on Security Engineering. Over the course of three hours, Suzie participates in a lively discussion with the instructor, teaching assistants, and her classmates; tackles 15 practice questions; and reinforces the key points of the lecture with N2K Lesson Book fill-in-the-blanks.

Live Online

Study On

Life doesn’t happen in a far-away boot-camp. It happens on your commute, on your lunch break, and, mostly, on your couch. That’s why our course is on-demand and live online. So, just like Suzie, you can do your cybersecurity exam preparation while you get on with your life.
