Differences between the Splunk Security courses?

Explorer

Could anyone give me a synopsis of the differences between the courses "Using Splunk Enterprise Security 5.2" and "Administering Splunk Enterprise Security 5.2"? I am trying to figure out which is the best/right course for me. I have looked over the course descriptions but I am still not sure. Thanks

What do you do? It's hard to tell which one would be better for you without understanding more about what you do in your day-to-day job and what you want to be doing with enterprise security

I was thinking of taking a job at another company doing threat hunting/incident reviewing but they were offering training as well so I just wanted to make sure the correct course would be available in the "spin up" time frame they gave me. Sorry for the very late response!

The "Using" course is for SOC/NOC personnel who will be making use of Splunk's Enterprise Security app as part of their jobs. The "Administering" course is for Splunk admins who have Enterprise Security installed in their environment.
