I believe it should be a requirement not a optional item.  In fact I was talking with Mario for the California event and at first he was considering SANS as a training company however after I explained to him we have PLENTY of supporting firms to inquire with and individual consultants that are members he understood the phase I approach. If nothing else the spilt should be different for NON SUPPORTING firms.


A RFT should actually be sent to the primary contact of each supporting company (vendor, industry, other).  

With my other hat on to answer your question:
Commercially, WhiteHat Security is a 100% channel company (B2B) not in the training business, hence we no longer offer direct training services as that would be in conflict with our global partners but thanks for thinking of us!
