The entire course is live and interactive. All students will have direct access to their own lab, online campus, the teacher’s screen, and the live class itself, they’ll have a big advantage over traditional face-to-face classes.

Live classes are available each week at a specific date/time.

Classes will be recorded for the students so they can review the material.

How will the information be organized?

The course will be divided into the following modules:

  • Introduction to the penetration testing process
  • Information gathering techniques
  • Exploitation techniques
  • Privilege escalation techniques
  • Lateral movement techniques
  • Penetration testing simulation
When will each module be available?

Students will need to finish one module before they move to the next one.

The student will take 10 weeks to complete the course, taking 2 hours per class each week.

How will students interact with the instructor?
  • Live Classes / Video conferencing
