What Our Clients Say
"I strongly recommend this course to physical and information security designers."
"The presentation format of the material was excellent but the instructor is absolutely outstanding."
"I’m new to SCIF requirements so this is very educational as a PM in charge of security projects."
"Breakout sessions for site assessments and design review [were] great. This gave the groups time to discuss and collaborate in demonstrating our current understanding of new information. With the amount of data collection or organization required to meet these standards, there are a ton of opportunities to highlight the necessity of collaboration for success."
"I found the course content to be packed up efficiently. The modules were clear, the agenda was set and the timing all linked up very well. The information was also presented in a simple and understandable manner, I think this makes a big difference for anyone without construction field experience."
"The breadth of the information presented and discussed allowed students to understand the policies, requirements, processes, and actions that we need to take in our project involvement from any aspect or role that we would be involved."
"I came into this class not knowing a lot about ICD 705 and now I am pretty confident tackling new my current and future projects with security."
"The exercises were a great hands-on way to learn. The interaction in each of the exercises helped me to see and understand things from various perspectives."
"I would recommend to my fellow PM's. I think it is helpful to understand the subject when managing a project with SCIF design."
"I would recommend this course. It is a LOT of information delivered in an effective way."
"As an estimator on a government contract, I am often part of the initial project intake process. Knowledge gained here will help establish WBS models we can use in parametric cost estimates to ensure we capture the primary elements associated with ICD-705 standards. This information will not only develop our understanding of the standards but help us, help our clients ask their clients the right questions in order to set up future projects for success."
"I was put into a role in the government that worked on a lot of security-related projects & SCIF renovations to meet ICD 705 standards. I had a lot of on-the-job training but had not been taught these details so I wanted to get a formal overview."
