Offensive Security is no ordinary training company. Before you take our training, you should be aware that our approach is not to provide our students with answers but instead to expect them to work independently and hard to find solutions to the various challenges our training and exams will pose them. The purpose of this approach is to instill a mindset that, in our view, all penetration testers need to succeed. This is core to our tough but well known “Try Harder” training philosophy and indeed is embedded in our corporate mission statement. It is also why our certifications are so highly sought after by employers. As a result, you will see that our Academic Policy takes a very tough stance on many forms of student collaboration that other training companies may allow.
Please take the time to read this Academic Policy as we have a very strict but simple posture regarding any breach of it; in our discretion, any student caught breaching this Academic Policy in preparation for, during or following their exam will (1) be permanently disqualified for life from the exam in question; (2) be barred permanently from making future purchases of any product or service from Offensive Security; (3) have any existing certification(s) revoked. This includes students caught seeking collaboration or assistance from or providing collaboration or assistance to, others such as seeking or providing solutions, answers, notes, hints, support etc.
Additionally, the following activities are not permissible:
Thank you for reading our Academic Policy. We wish you the best of luck with your training and exams but do remember; Try Harder!
