On-line training is the way to go! Cost-effective, could still cover all bases - work and home, with no travel, accommodation, meals +++ costs, etc. The course was 5 days in duration and delivered to US timezone, so although it got quite tiring from the middle of the week it was still worth it, being a freelancer, to still be able to cover the day job until 2pm as well. It sometimes felt like we could go a bit faster, but part of the essential accreditation criteria is the training requires 5 days. We did have a slight technical glitch at the start of day 1, but the timing meant we were able to catch up without impact. The pre-course admin is excellent and the course content/supporting materials provided underpinned the thorough grounding needed for the subject matter of auditing ISO27001.

Good class. I recommend that when the class loses connectivity you take a break and not continue the class, then take a break after everyone gets back.
