    Although I enjoyed this course and thought the content was useful and well presented, I had hoped to use the time towards CPE credits for my CISSP cert.

    Be aware that the courses provided by UW for InfoSec will not come with a completion certificate.

    Nothing to prove that you invested your valuable time in a worthwhile effort.
