    thru SANS a few years ago. Also, inquire to the snort mailing list and
    its web site (

    I am hoping someone might offer suggestions/advice on where I may
    receive formal "in class" training for Snort. I live in the Central Ohio
    region. We have a couple of training centers (New Horizons and Babbage
    Simmel), however they do not offer course for IDSs other than Cisco's.

    Has anyone seen advertisements or been through such a training program
    for Snort? If so, where?
