Distance learning benefits

  • Delivered by experts

  • Delivered by ISO 27001 experts Alan Calder and Steve Watkins, this recorded training session is built on the foundations of our extensive, practical experience helping companies achieve ISO 27001 certification. 

    Our team led the world’s first ISO 27001 certification project, and since launching our training programme, we have trained more than 7,000 professionals on ISMS implementations and audits worldwide.

  • Flexible learning

  • Distance learning lets you learn in your own time, from the comfort of your own home or office. Stop and start the recording according to your schedule, repeat modules that you want to go over again or skip parts that cover familiar topics. If you have a busy schedule and cannot commit to a whole day’s uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.

    Because this is a recorded session, you get just the undiluted core content, delivered in the most time-efficient manner, without any of the interruptions normally associated with a classroom course.

  • Cost-effective

  • Because distance learning courses are recorded WebEx sessions, they offer considerable savings over classroom and Live Online courses, which both feature live interaction with a trainer.

“The course was one of a kind and no book can replace the instructor’s experience, teaching and insight. He’s a true expert on the subject and transformed my understanding of ISO 27001 into a comprehensible, useful and applicable tool and framework. I was afraid it would be a boring course, but not one dull moment with Alan. Time flew and I had many AHA moments.”

Andre De Coninck, Van Doorne N.V.
