INDUSTRY EXPERT COACH
Mr. Gansmiller has several years of experience developing and writing network and security policy for the U.S. Department of Energy.

His classes are engaging seminars for students, rather than the typical "death by PowerPoint" seminar where the trainer reads a set of PowerPoint slides point-by-bullet point.
