    I had a blast taking this course. It is clear that the instructor puts in a lot of time and effort into organizing it. The class featured a mix of beginners, intermediate, and advanced students. Even with that spread, it seemed that every student got something useful out of it. That’s a true testament to the instructor’s style. He’s personable, effective, and extremely knowledgeable. Most importantly, he’s very patient. It must take a lot of that to walk students through the steps that he has probably done thousands of times before, but never once did he make us feel like our questions were stupid or that we were beyond hope. He gave us just enough to challenge us, but also allowed us to grow and discover the “art” through our mistakes. And that made “dumping hashes on the domain controller” all that much more satisfying at the end. That’s a phrase that I never thought I’d even say, let alone actually accomplish myself. Tyrone totally made that happen, and I can’t thank him enough!

    Will definitely look forward to future workshops. This one was extraordinarily helpful.
