Here is what students say about Chris Dale:

The fact that he spoke with the same amount of enthusiasm, passion, and energy on Monday morning that he did following lunch on the Friday is a real testament to his professionalism and diligence. I will be recommending colleagues to attend this course particularly if Chris is taking it." ~ Liam M.

"His teaching skills are extra-ordinary and the approach he uses to explain concepts is so unique that keeps the learners so interested. Chris is very highly skilled on Cyber Security, Incident Response and his enthusiastic passion for sharing that knowledge, spicing it with some fun is something special and hard to find in all trainers. I would say he is the best trainer I had until now in my career and recommend him as an excellent cyber security consultant to any firm. Thank You for the beneficial training, Chris." ~ Rini I.

"His experience in cyber security was immediately apparent, as was his enthusiasm for the subject. Chris was a great teacher combining energy with a genuine concern for his pupils. He was a pleasure to spend time with and an inspiration." ~ Jeremy M.
