The most intense penetration testing course available in the security industry.
Penetration Testing with Kali (PWK) is a self-paced online penetration testing course designed for network administrators and security professionals who want to take a serious and meaningful step into the world of professional penetration testing. This unique penetration testing training course introduces students to the latest ethical hacking tools and techniques, including remote, virtual penetration testing labs for practicing the course materials. Penetration Testing with Kali Linux simulates a full penetration test from start to finish, by injecting the student into a target-rich, diverse, and vulnerable network environment.
Penetration Testing with Kali Linux is a foundational course, but still requires students to have certain knowledge prior to attending the online class. A solid understanding of TCP/IP, networking, and reasonable Linux skills are required. Familiarity with Bash scripting along with basic Perl or Python is considered a plus. This advanced penetration testing course is not for the faint of heart; it requires practice, testing, and the ability to want to learn in a manner that will grow your career in the information security field and overcome any learning plateau. Offensive Security challenges you to rise above the rest, dive into the fine arts of advanced penetration testing, and to Try Harder™.
Why settle for less? Join the leading penetration testing course and boost your career with real Penetration Testing skills.
We begin a new PWK course every Sunday with seats filling up rapidly, so we recommend that students begin their registration at least 10 days prior to their desired start date. The VPN lab access begins on your course start date and is a continuous block of time.
The online penetration testing labs are accessed via a VPN connection, so all students must have a high-speed Internet connection. In order to ensure a quality lab experience, you will be required to conduct a VPN connectivity test prior to making payment.
On your assigned course start date, you’ll be provided access to download all your course materials, including the 8-hour Offensive Security PWK course video series in HTML/Flash format and the 350-page PWK lab guide. You will also receive instructions on how to connect to our virtual penetration testing labs.
When your course begins, you are provided with VPN access to our vast penetration testing labs and are given access to a dedicated Windows virtual machine. You will use this access to complete various exercises and practice concepts from the PWK course.
As you progress through the PWK course materials, you will practice the tools and techniques directly on various targets within our online labs. You will then make use of your new-found skills and techniques to help you conduct a penetration test of the entire lab environment.
Successfully exploiting all of the lab systems requires a great deal of research, tenacity, and the willingness to Try Harder. However, you are not on your own; our student administrators are readily available to provide you with live support and the occasional nudge to help push you in the right direction when you’re out of options.
The Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) is the companion certification for Penetration Testing with Kali Linux. The OSCP exam challenges you to prove you have a clear practical understanding of the penetration testing process and lifecycle.
Once you have completed the course and practiced your skills in our labs, you’re ready to take on the arduous 24-hour OSCP penetration testing certification exam – a real-world, hands-on penetration test that takes place in our isolated VPN exam network.
You will have 90 days from the end of your lab time to schedule and take this most unique and challenging of ethical hacking certification exams. The OSCP is very challenging and not for the faint-of-heart. However, earning it is incredibly rewarding and proves to yourself and others that you have proven practical penetration testing skills.
Learn Penetration Testing online with Kali Linux – the advanced Penetration Testing Training course by Offensive Security which leads towards the OSCP, marking you as an Offensive Security Certified Penetration Tester, with proven hands-on experience in the field.
