The industry-leading Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PWK/PEN-200) course introduces penetration testing methodologies, tools, and techniques in a hands-on, bootcamp environment. 


Why this Certification?

OSCP is the only certificate that matters if you want a career in Penetration Testing. It is highly desirable for employers as it demonstrates practical skills and help develop an adversarial mindset. The OSCP exam is notoriously difficult, which is why it is so highly regarded within the industry. Establish your credibility with peers and kick start your penetration testing career with OSCP today!

About the bootcamp

The Bootcamp is a 5 day intensive program that covers a number of core concepts and walks you through a number of the labs. However, it’s not designed to be all that you need and then be ready for the exam. It is still expected that you put in the hours before and after the bootcamp with self-paced learning to ensure you cover all areas of the lab in preparation for your exam.

The Bootcamp will however set you up for success with guidance from industry leading trainers and connect you with peers that are going through the same experience as you.

Learning Outcomes

Participants who complete the course and pass the exam will earn the OffSec Certified Professional (OSCP) certification which requires holders to successfully attack and penetrate various live machines in a safe lab environment. The OSCP is considered to be more technical than other ethical hacking certifications and is one of the few that requires evidence of practical penetration testing skills.

“We build it into our KPI that all our Offensive Security Consultants need to obtain an OSCP certification within their first 2 years. It is critical that they validate their skill set, and having a certification to bench mark against allows us to better manage our team.”
