Re: Help Convincing Employer to Pay for SANS Training

Thanks for all the advice. I think the best bet is to volunteer for SANS
Fire 2013. I live in the DC area so it would be perfect. I am still going
to submit my write up just in case I am not chosen as a volunteer but I am
definitely filling out the application tonight.

I'll second what Mike said. If you can be a facilitator for a class you
get the training and the cert for a significant discount. There is a LOT of
work to do during the week being a facilitator.

Subject: [Pauldotcom] Help Convincing Employer to Pay for SANS Training

I have already talked to my direct management and they are all for
sending me to SANS Fire 2013 in Washington, DC.  The only issue now is
that I have to convince upper management that it is worth it to pay for me
to go to the training.  The class I am taking is SEC506 Securing
Unix/Linux and considering our environment is 97% Linux it should be a no
brainer.  But I was wondering if anyone could help provided me with some
bullet points I can use in my write up to help convince upper management to
pay for the course.  The company I work for is a contacting company
mostly to the Federal Government with some Private Industry so anything
related to the Federal Government would be great.

Thanks
