The onboarding process has been quite productive throughout with the best team. The customer support team is able and ever on alert when requested to assist. It has simple user interface which is not the case with other similar platforms. The training modules are easy to understand and put into practice. It meets the set threshold and complies with company principals.

  • Questions! The Database/site was updated, and I was no longer able to access the questions and choose specific topics to study from
  • There were two CISSP courses to watch videos, I would remove the oldest
  • Put an emphasis that users have a years membership after completing a boot camp

Because the skills learned from the course have proven to be beneficial in the day-to-day tasks that I typically perform. They are either directly related to or at the very least a complementary skill set that allows me to perform my duties overall in a more beneficial way to the people that I support.

Digital Marketer is another one I've used, and it's more for detailed courses with examples and worksheets. You take the knowledge and apply it for actionable results right away, where as HubSpot Academy are more high-level courses to refresh you on various topics, but don't go into too much detail on actionable ideas and examples to try.

I am in cyber security and this domain required me to do some internationally recognized certifications and infosec skills had helped in clearing these certifications. Their training instructors was awesome and practice questions quality was great. With the help of infosec skill i had cleared CISSP and CRISC exam. I experience, Cybrary on the other hand has less certifications preparation options as compared to infosec skills
