I attended this class in November, 2000 (http://www.sans.org/giactc.htm) and passed my certification test in February 2001.

Wasn't all that easy, but well worth it. Of course my company paid the fees for that class. I've signed up for the November 2001 FIREWALLS, PERIMETER PROTECTION AND VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORKS class and with the downturn in the economy, our company has cut back on funding these types of things...however, I would like to continue on for my Certified Security Engineer from sans.org so I've footed the $2600 for this myself.
