Offensive Security gets thousands of requests for partnerships every week. They reached out to us in 2019 to help prepare those interested in passing the OSCP Certification.

The industry’s most comprehensive OSCP exam & advanced penetration testing bootcamp

About our bootcamp

Our 18-week, immersive OSCP training is delivered live-online in a classroom-type setting. It focuses heavily on in-class discussions and hands-on labs (both individually and in small groups). This creates a deeper and more practical understanding of penetration testing. You get all the support, skills, and experience you need to pass the OSCP exam.

OSCP instructors are familiar with every aspect of the exam and teach you the exact concepts you must know to get OSCP certified.
Evening class times allow you to learn around a full-time work schedule (M - Th, 7-9 p.m. CT).
Ongoing access to instructors for support whenever you feel stuck.
Learn using pre-configured virtual lab infrastructure that spins up on demand with all the tools required to pass the OSCP exam.

About the OSCP exam

The problem with preparing alone for the OSCP exam is the lack of support when you run into roadblocks while doing the labs. It’s easy to lose motivation when you can’t crack a machine. There’s also no documentation or step-by-step process for doing Offensive Security labs.

The typical learning period needed to pass the OSCP exam is 6-12 months. We give you the knowledge and hands-on experience you need in just 18 weeks.
Attempting the OSCP certification without support is difficult. We provide thorough support and give you advanced techniques for completing the labs.
Exam preparation requires compromising as many machines as possible. We allow use of our CyberLAB™ even after the course ends, so you can keep practicing.

Reviews from our students

Joshua Raju

I've learned more in the past 4 months than I have in my entire life. As hard as it has been, it has been equally rewarding completing the bootcamp. The labs are very interesting and Read more... also very hands on which was a big factor in gaining real world experience.  I was able to land a job about a month after the class ended. This program quite literally changed my life.

My favorite part about my experience at Evolve was the professional focus that Evolve provides. Everything we did was related to the cybersecurity industry. Read more... The lecture, the labs, and the Meetups with guest instructors gave me more information and knowledge necessary to gain expertise in the cyber security industry.

This is by far the most valuable single course I've ever gone through, purely due to the value of the material we were taught. It is heavily reliant on giving its students hands-on experience with system and security tools. Read more... By the time I was done, I was answering questions in job interviews that the interviewers told me they would only expect a person with years of experience to answer.
