Presented By: 7ASecurity
The 2 day course will take place online over four half days between 2pm and 6pm (GMT) on the 13-16 June 2022.
The price is £1,020 (inc VAT/£850 ex VAT).
Please note their courses are 100% hands-on, they do not lecture students with boring bullet points and theories, instead they give you practical challenges and help you solve them, teaching you how to troubleshoot common issues and get the most out of this training. Training then continues after the course through their frequently updated course material, for which you keep lifetime access, as well as unlimited email support.

Why should you take this course?
This is more than a usual online course: you get lifetime access to all course materials with step-by-step video recordings, slides and lab exercises, including all future updates for free.
Students can take the course at their own pace and lifetime access ensures topics can be reviewed on an ad-hoc basis as required by the student online after the course.
This training has been built from real issues seen in real applications, not fabricated vulnerabilities that you will never see in practice.
The goal is to start from the basics and ensure that each student comes out of the training with a significantly higher level of proficiency in the artistry of pentesting.
As the course has been written and carefully created by professional penetration testers, after many years of experience, many practical tips will be shared to leverage automation and make penetration testing more efficient as soon as the student goes back to their workplace.

Prerequisite of Training Class
Hardware & Software: Attendees should bring
A laptop with the following specifications:
- Ability to connect to wireless and wired networks
- Ability to read PDF files
- Administrative rights: USB allowed, the ability to deactivate AV, firewall, install tools, etc
- Knowledge of the BIOS password, in case VT is disabled
- Minimum 8GB of RAM (recommended: 16GB+)
- 60GB+ of free disk space (to copy a lab VM and other goodies)
- VirtualBox 6.0 or greater, including the “VirtualBox Extension Pack” (NOTE: VMWare is also known to work)
Student / Prerequisites for attendees
This course has no prerequisites as it is designed to accommodate students with different skills:
- Advanced students will enjoy comprehensive labs, extra miles and CTF challenges
- Less experienced students complete what they can during the class and can continue at their own pace from home using the training portal.
This said, the more you learn about the following ahead of the course, the more you will get out of the course:
- Linux command line basics
Who should attend
If you are new and cannot complete the labs during the class, that is OK, as you keep course access; you will learn a lot in the class but can continue from home with your lifetime course access.
If you are more advanced you can try to complete the labs in full and then take the CTF challenges 7ASecurity have for each section; you will likely also attempt to complete some exercises from home later 🙂
What to expect
Lifetime access to all course material (including all future updates), unlimited email support, access to private groups to communicate with other students, and interesting apps from various countries.
What not to expect
This is more than a usual online course: you get lifetime access to all training material with step-by-step video recordings, slides and lab exercises, including all future updates for free.
The course does not cover: 0-days, Windows/Linux/Mac OS exploits, x86 exploit writing, writing buffer or heap overflows.
Do not expect the teachers to be talking through slides most of the time. This class is practical not theoretical, the teachers don’t bore you with slides all the time, instead you do exercises all the time and the teachers help you solve the challenges you face as you complete them.
