Frequently Asked Questions

Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!

Here are some of the most popular questions that we receive during our correspondence with our customers and prospective clients.

What services do you provide?

All the training courses listed on our Training Page, as well as custom material/consulting support available on a case-by-case basis by contacting us.

I’m an individual, can I take one of your courses?

Our services are typically only offered through private trainings with organizations. However, a 4-day condensed version of the Windows Internals “Security Track” is taught yearly at the Recon Conference, in Montreal during Summer, and in Brussels during Winter. Contact the conference to book your spot, as seats sell out fast.

How long does a course take?

Our courses are tailed to take, 3-5 days depending on the amount of practical exercises and topic. Certain courses can be combined to take 10 days back-to-back. Additional content can result in additional training days.

How much will it cost?

For our public course, Recon sets the price at an appropriate industry-standard amount (currently 5500 CAD in Montreal, 3600 EUR in Brussels, plus applicable taxes), plus your travel costs to get there. Our private courses come at a substantial discount, and only include the trainer’s travel expenses. Custom courses will require additional development costs and time.

What are the conditions for private course?

All reasonable travel expenses must be paid by client, a minimum of at least 12 attendees (in most cases) must be paid for, and a signed PO and agreement must be received at least 90 days before the course begins. Case-by-case exceptions and custom contracts are possible.

What is included with a course?

A physical copy of the Windows Internals book (latest edition) as well as a physical course handout book, with all slides and space for note taking.

What languages do you teach in?

Although all course materials are in English, the course itself can be taught in English, French, or Romanian at a native-speaker language level.

Where can you travel?

Our instructor can travel in any location that is friendly and/or allied to Western/pro-democratic interests and which permits visa-free (or ESTA/VOA) travel for American, Canadian and/or EU Citizens or residents. We’re sorry, but Winsider Seminars nor our instructor will engage with elements associated with, controlled, or otherwise in favor of unfriendly regimes and/or policies to Western/pro-democratic interests.

Who do you teach?

In order to ensure the confidentiality, privacy and integrity of its customer transactions, Winsider does not divulge any specific clients. At a broad level, Winsider Seminars works with a variety of large multi-national corporations, security-focused agencies, and other defense-related organizations. While contracting with David Solomon Expert Seminars, Inc., Winsider engaged with Microsoft Corporation on multiple occasions.
