Course Description

Whether you are penetration testing, Red Teaming or trying to get a better understanding of managing vulnerabilities in your environment, understanding advanced hacking techniques is critical. This course covers a wide variety of neat, new and ridiculous techniques to compromise modern Operating Systems and networking devices.

While prior pentest experience is not a strict requirement, familiarity with both Linux and Windows command line syntax will be greatly beneficial.

To fit the entire training material within these days, some of the exercises have been replaced by demos which will be shown by the instructor. Students will receive FREE 1 month lab access to practice each exercise after the class.

Target audience

System Administrators, SOC analysts, Penetration testers, network engineers, security enthusiasts and anyone who wants to take their skills to next level.

While prior pentest experience is not a strict requirement, familiarity with both Linux and Windows command line syntax will be greatly beneficial. A further hands-on experience with common hacking tools such as Metasploit will also be beneficial, although, less advanced users can work their way up during the 30 days of complimentary lab access provided as part of the class.


The only requirement for this class is that you must bring your own laptop and have admin/root access on it.

During the class, we will give you VPN access to our state-of-art Hacklab which is hosted in our data-center in the UK. Once you are connected to the lab, you will find all the relevant tools/VMs there. We also provide a dedicated Kali VM to each attendee on the hacklab. So, you don’t need to bring any VMs with you. All you need is admin access to install the VPN client and once connected, you are good to go!
