Like other courses, was rich
RMF for DoD IT: This is an amazing course. The instructor was very knowledgeable and gave me confidence in my knowledge and implementation of RMF.
RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors: This, like the other courses, was rich. It provided great insight for one who is cleared and has been working for cleared DoD contract companies or the Federal Govt my entire career.
Security Controls Implementation Workshop: This was a great training. The instructor presented it in the best way which is from his knowledge and not from words on in a slide show. This shows that he is knowledgeable and an expert of RMF subject matter.
Security Controls Assessment Workshop: This course was great. I already am very knowledgeable of RMF, however, because there was no formal training at the time it transitioned from DIACAP, this was quite the gift especially coming from an instructor who also was from this time period. He was able to relate on all levels.
Note: This student enrolled in many courses through BAI. Contact us about discounts for bundling classes!

NOTE FROM BAI: In January 2021 Adobe pushed out an update to their Adobe Connect software that had some known bugs. Those issues should be fixed in the next update.

Thank you for making that subject matter much more interesting than it has to be. I am back at my respective Gulag with a few ideas. –
I Was Enlightened
I wanted to first of all say “Thank You So Much” for the RMF Training class the week of 29 October! I was enlightened as I’m sure many of the other students were. I loved how we could see you (and occasionally your very curious cat!) in the Adobe Connect window – it made the class more personal vs. just listening to someone’s voice for 4 days. You are a wealth of knowledge and every one of us has benefitted from that!
