Security Testing Track


This training is 5-weeks of immersive and hands-on training, delivered remotely through live instruction, recorded lectures and lab tutorials. Students will gain the knowledge to deliver a full penetration test at the network and application layer, from scoping, threat modeling and discovery to vulnerability scanning, exploitation and reporting. Each lab is created based off real world situations encountered by Evolve Security penetration testers. There are no capture the flag exercises, made up scenarios or silly puzzles.

This training is designed for anyone who wants to become a penetration tester or who is interested on how hacker breaches an organization. The training will be challenging but rewarding. The only difference between a junior pen tester and a senior pen tester is experience. Sign up for this training to get a truly unique experience.

Time Commitment: 2 hours a week watching pre-recorded lectures. 8 hours a week attending live online sessions. 5-10 hours a week spent outside of class researching and digging deeper into the lab environments.

  • Approaches to Penetration Testing & Legality
  • Scoping & Rules of Engagement

This training is designed for anyone who wants to become a penetration tester or understand how a hacker breaches an environment. This training is designed to be challenging, no matter what your technical background is.

If you do not have a technical background, then you will just have to spend more time outside of class performing open source research. If you are more technically advanced, then you will benefit from exposure to practical lab environments that have actually been seen by our security consultants on the job.

The difference between a junior penetration tester and senior penetration tester is experience and quality of findings
and reporting.

A basic knowledge of TCP/IP and Linux command line is highly recommended. Programming knowledge is not required for the course.

Recommended resources to getting started:

Pre-qualified for course if you have completed the Evolve Security Academy bootcamp, a bachelor’s or master’s degree in information security, or have any of the following certifications: CompTIA Security+, CompTIA CSA+, Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), or an equivalent written security or penetration testing certification. This course is also suited for individuals with a networking or computer science background.
