We have amazing infrastructure!
Seriously. Each student at Parrot Labs has an individual workstation with two wide-screen monitors and two high-end computers for conducting research and running exercises using between 20 and 40 virtual machines throughout the course.
We provide the equipment
You don't need to worry about whether your laptop has the right software, or if your computer is powerful enough to run the exercises. Students at Parrot Labs are provided personal workstations for the duration of each course. Our large dual-monitored systems come complete with separate network connections for the Internet and your sandboxed virtual Internet. All you need to bring is yourself!.
Parrot Labs has deep roots in the cybersecurity community. We have been training and evaluating students in the field for years.
Our staff are friendly, well-credentialed and experienced
Our instructors have a wide variety of industry certificates, including CISSP, CCNA, CASP, CEH, Security+ and Network+. More importantly, we have what matters most: real world experience. All of our instructors have worked previously as cyber-security specialists and they continue to serve in those roles today (when they're not teaching classes, of course!).
Our courses are accredited by ANSI for certificate-granting programs. This means that when you take one of our courses and pass the exam, you will receive an industry-recognized certificate to reflect your new skills and expertise.
Our main training facility is conveniently located near BWI Airport, right in between Baltimore and Washington DC.
