eLearning's PTP/eCPPT updating

BlackBeretBlackBeret Posts: 684Member ■■■■■□□□□□
For those considering taking eLearnSecurity's PTP course, it's being upgraded to v4 on 21 June 2016. You might want to wait until after that date to purchase the course.

    I remember emailing them about upgrading from v2 to v3 and got no answer. In all their promotions I never saw anything related to upgrading from a previous version to the latest.

    I litterally lost all my courses too. Once they moved to the new caendra login portal all my courses were gone. I log back to the old portal and ALL gone too! I have been emailing them for several months now and its just a constant back and forth of "oh log into your previous account." I have explained this to them several times that I do not see my courses on the new and old portals using my new and old accounts.

    smh......

    That's strange, when they transferred to the new login system I lost the free previews that I had access to, but it didn't have any affect on the courses I paid for. If I'm not mistaken you can pay for upgrades to new versions, but who wants to pay? That's why I suggest those looking at it just wait until 21 June.

    Agreed, the upgrade if true, is still around 30-40% off of $1000 which will end up being a $600-700 investment just for an upgrade....

    how much of the material from v3 is still on v4?

    What if I studied and learned most of v3 and now that v4 is out and I want to go for v4? Does it make sense to spend another $600-700 investment when I had just spent $1000 on v3 previously? So over a $1500 investment between upgrades and original purchase of the previous version....

    Have you called them and sent them screenshots of your issue? Usually when I do that things work out.

    Let me know when you find the tech support number hahahaha

    I guess screen shots will have to do since its doesn't seem like explaining it to them is working out.

    Since they are updating the course to a new version does that mean there is going to different versions of the exam as well? Anyone know what happened last time? Guessing they had 2 versions of the exam available for x amount of time like most vendors but curious.

    Yea, they told me to wait before I did the course upgrade. I was gonna just do the V3 and upgrade later.

    I'm glad that I can do the course upgrade without having to pay for the full amount for the whole course. I really wanna do some hands on security stuff.
    Booya!!

    In doing a search on the eLearnSecurity forums, a staff member posted last month that they believed the upgrade from 2 to 3 was about $200. Would be awesome if the upgrade from 3 to 4 is that much, or at least for release webex viewers.

    I might upgrade but I'm not 100% decided...it's not that PTPv3 material is out of date or anything...yes it could be better to have PTPv4 but if I'm just using it as a stepping stone for OSCP then maybe not...I'll decide later, I'm busy with other stuff for the next 3 months!
    Goal: MBA, August 2020

    I hope the PTPv4 will be very helpful towards the OSCP. I really don't want to wait for the next version and I was starting to look at doing the OSCP but I gotta be patient. I'm trying to keep myself occupied with CTF365 to practice/play around with tools.
    Booya!!

    I hope in the new version they do a better job with matching the lessons to the labs like they do in the PTS course.
