Pentester Candidate Program – June 2018

Pentester Candidate Program June 2018

On the 4th  of June 2018, InfoSec Addicts 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.

  • Reading
  • Watching videos
  • Lab exercises to perform

On Thursdays from 7-8pm EST, a career development class (focused resume development, portfolio development, mock interviews, and discussions with potential employers).

On Saturdays from 4-6pm EST, a live online training session/QA period will be held.


What are the prerequisites for the pentester program?

This program is more about desire. More so, it is about work ethic and ability to work in a team environment. Although Technical ability is important, it is not the most required attribute. That being said, candidates should have:

  • Familiarity with both Windows, Linux, and VMWare
  • Familiarity with basic programming concepts
  • Ability to commit 8-12 hours per week to the program

What do you receive?

  • Access to the training program
  • Weekly group mentoring sessions with Joe McCray
  • Monthly chances to speak with hiring managers and team leads. These are managers from security consulting firms. This will happen for each month of the program
  • 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 1 month only. It will run for the entire month of June 2018. Interviews for top candidates will occur later in the month of June 2018.

  1. I just paid for the Penetester Academy Program for my Son. It is being shipped to my address however is for my son. Will he have a problem signing on, logging on or completing the Program? The order needed to match the name on the credit card. My email address is [email protected]. My cell phone is 857 207 2762. Tavis R. Carter 5 Downey Ct. Dorchester, MA 02125.

      1. Basic Linux knowledge is a priority. You will learn Python, Ruby (basics), you will also work with Powershell. But if you have some basic knowledge of programming skills you will be good

  2. Signed up for the course “Pentester Candidate Program”.How long does it take for them to respond to the enrollment.I didn’t receive any messages as of now.

  3. I need to set this program up for my son, I simply paid for it. can you help me? I was expecting something in the mail.

  4. 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?

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

    1. Hello, yes absolutely. Everything is done online, our classes are designed for everyone no matter where you are. Regards.

  7. Hello, I am interested in taking this pentester program but don’t know if it’s also possible for people not dwelling in the US. Tell me more about it, please. Also, is there limit seat, I see it will run in January 2018 and cost $200. If so, let me know. Thanks for your reply

    1. Hello, the Pentester candidate program was moved and thus will start from the 4th of November 2017. yes, there’s no hindering you from participating in the program as it is purely online. The class has no limit. Hoping to see you there. Regards.

  8. Hello, is it possible to pay monthly like you did on the past? If i remember well of course… you do 200€ for the 3 months but thats hard to me to pay this in 1 month, so Can i pay 75 per months? 75*3=225$ you win 25$ more and i win unbelievable knowledge with master Joe and his team

  9. Hello,

    I have scheduled working hours, which means that I won’t be able to attend weekend classes all the time. Does the videos will be recorded?

  10. Hi I bought the course, can you please let me know how it works its scheduled? I also trying to download the VM but the link is not working, can you please chet it?

    1. Hello, the job interviews are more suited for those in the US. However, the package has far much more to gain from. The job interview is just a tip of the iceberg.

  11. I am interested in this program, but I am not sure if I meet the requirements in regards to knowledge. I see that it is online as well, which is great but what if I have something to do that night…will I be able to access the content later? I currently have a MAC computer would I need VM Fusion or something like it to run Windows?

    1. Hello, all course material is sent to all participants after each session so you don’t have to worry about missed time. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about your computer, We got you.

  12. Can you tell me if you offer “on-site” or in person, physical attendance for this program? Online courses are often great and very very convenient, but sometimes it really helps to get more out of a training program when at least a few students are all physically located in the same room and working closely together.

    1. Hello, the pentester candidate program is a fully online course as participants come from every part of the world. All participants are given access to a group where they interact and work together during the duration of the program. Regards.

  13. A while back you gave me a 50% off coupon that I wanted to use but the class was cancelled. I wasn’t able to use it after because I was preparing for my CISSP exam.
    Is it possible to use it for the Pentester Candidate program starting next week?

    Thank you!

    1. Hello, it’s not too late to join the pentester candidate program yet so please jump into in Today. The next re-run will come later in the year.

  18. What are your recommendations to someone who has a CISSP (so somewhat knowledgable) but is new to pen testing, and only has 30 minutes a night (so less than your recommended 8-12 hours a week)

    1. Hello Jon, kindly join the course and ask for an extension of deadlines. You can still undertake the course perfectly.
