This beginner’s course offers an intensive hands-on introduction to ethical hacking. During the course, you will understand how hackers think and work, and you will try your hand at various hacking techniques including Wi-Fi hacking, web vulnerability scanning, SQL injection, password cracking and file inclusion. At the end of the course, you will use your newly acquired hacking skills to perform a basic black-box penetration test in a Capture the Flag format. This is an entry level ethical hacking course. If you’re looking for an advanced course in professional penetration testing, we’d recommend you to have a look at the Ethical Hacking Practitioner training.


This course is taught entirely in English.
