Re: Help Convincing Employer to Pay for SANS Training

Hey Pierre,

What also might work is to propose a contract where it is stipulated that you will refund a part of the cost should you leave the company within a given time frame (e.g. 100% if you leave within a year, 50% for 2 years etc.), this way management is sure the investment (training should always be sold to management as investment) will pay off or be paid back ...

Hi Pierre,
Not sure of your situation. However what worked for me was volunteering to cover a part of the cost. The training budget got cut. I really wanted to do the course and so I made them an offer, It worked for me.
Regards,
Michael

    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
