The developers of Kali Linux, Offensive Security, have announced that they will be releasing a free video training course later this month on Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PEN-200/PWK), which will be offered in the form of a live-streamed course.
During the course, you will be prepared to take the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) examination, which was conducted in person before the pandemic started.
Free Cyber Security Training
While live training ended for a period of time during the pandemic, companies created programs that would be available remotely or online instead.
Offensive Security launched the ‘OffSec Academy’ in support of this transition, which is an online course consisting of 13 weeks in length that prepares users for the OSCP examination.
As part of OffSec’s recent announcement, the company will now be live-streaming their online offering through the Twitch streaming platform ‘OffSec Live,’ which is in evolution from their online offering.
OffSec Academy will stream the PEN-200 sessions twice-weekly on Twitch for 60 minutes each, and everyone can attend these sessions free of charge.
Moreover, the Offensive Security Discord server allows participants to converse with instructors and peers on a real-time basis.
The Twitch streams are open for anyone to watch and follow along on their own whenever they want. Offensive Security has created an online lab and training materials to help students prepare for the course but only enrolled students will have access to the material.
The OffSec Live
From June 22nd, 2022 through November 30th, 2022, members of the PEN-200 class will be able to stream every Wednesday and Friday from 12:00-1:00 PM ET.
PWK’s OffSec Academy has been ascertained to be a cohesive and effective way for individuals to achieve their professional goals. PWK looks forward to teaching future classes and working with future students.
