Offensive Security Certified Professional – OSCP Certification

Demonstrates your expertise in penetration testing techniques and tools.

The OSCP is our accompanying information security certification to the Penetration Testing with Kali Linux course. The OSCP was the first security certification in the market that requires a fully “hands on” performance-based approach, leaving no space for multiple choice questions. As the market leader, the OSCP changed the landscape of the information security certification marketplace. During the information security certification online test, the student is placed in a virtual lab network with several vulnerable machines; points are then  awarded if a successful compromise occurs. The student must demonstrate their depth of understanding by documenting both the steps they took to penetrate the box as well as captured flag files in a report at the conclusion of testing.
