I didn't see this posted when I searched, just saw it today when I went to the website.

Looks like there will be a webinar tomorrow (02/20/2017 1:00 PM EST)

    I'm scheduled. This looks like it could be interesting.

    I thought it looked good myself. What do you guys think?

    Looked really good. Forensics is something that I've wanted to learn for some time. I need to take some other training/certifications before I can study forensics, though. Good to know eLearnSecurity now has a course.

    Speaking with our forensic guys on various occasions this appears to be a pretty solid lineup of knowledge.

    With the 40% discount they sent out I might get this course. I've been meaning to learn more about forensics and for $700 this seems like a pretty solid course. It would be nice if their certifications were more recognized since their kind of worthless at this point, but their course material is really great quality for the price. So far I've done the PTS, PTP and WAPT. Starting working through the PTX as well and it's pretty solid material. Hope this can help round out defensive skills since most of the stuff I've studied has been offensive in focus.

    I see they don't have an exam for this course yet either. They did that for the last 2 courses. Seems like they are not finished with it yet.

    Side note:
    I am debating to start with their ecppt or go to OSCP first. Can you help me out in understanding some things I discovered?

    I am trying to find out any scoring matrix for ANY of the els courses.
    OSCP is easy to understand. X machine is worth Y points, you need Z points to pass.
    It seems like the ecppt exam is subjective to whomever reviews it (yes, I know it is a full report), while the OS is pretty obvious based on what you did.

    Is that impression right?

    Hi new2Sec,

    I was planning on doing the eCPPT and then OSCP but managed to squeeze PTS first and completed them all last year.

    In terms of what you've mentioned, it's not entirely correct as eLearnSecurity will give you exam objectives (e.g. compromise of certain machines/networks) which you would need to try and pass at a minimum. There are a lot of exam reviews which will explain it further. The focus is more on treating it as a penetration test then capture the flag. This means it's important to discover as much vulnerabilities as possible, even if you don't exploit them all, and then create a detailed report which documents what you captured.

    Hope that explains things for you.
