Pentester Candidate Program January 2018

On the 6th  of January 2018, Strategic Security will launch the Pentester Candidate Program. This program is designed to satisfy the basic requirements of a penetration tester. The program will cover the most common technical and soft skill requirements. Top candidates will later receive job interviews for a remote penetrating testing job. This is through partnership with several penetration testing firms

Top candidates may receive interview opportunities for a cleared penetration testing position. This is more so for those with a US Security Clearance and who live in either the DC, Maryland or Virginia areas.

This is the real chance more so for those who REALLY want to become pentesters. It is the perfect combination of hands-on training, mentorship, and a real job opportunity.

  • Log book of all of your labs. This is a technical walk-through document demonstrating your proficiency to companies you interview with
  • A letter of reference from Joe McCray
  • Top candidates are guaranteed interviews with consulting firms and DoD contracting companies.

Candidates will have a chance to take ANY and AS MANY classes that they want from InfoSec Addicts. This will come as part of this program. Most notably, as many as 20 classes are held per month.

This program will run for 3 months. It will run from the month of January up to the month of March 2018. Interviews for top candidates will occur later in the month of March 2018.

  4. This appears to be a “Bate-n-switch”…. The advertise cost is reduced to 300USD but when you attempt to sign up it shows 750USD.
    ???? Questions abound!

  5. As of today (6.27) the PayPal link to pay still shows $750. I know at least 2 people that want to sign up, but you need to change the payment in PayPal first.

  6. Hello.

    I was told I could sign up here for $300 but the link is prompting me in PayPal for $750. Is it too late to get the $300 price?

  7. So, when is the exact last day to register for the course for $300? I’m very interested.
