Rough guess of the order I signed up and started each of these training courses.

These are my personal opinions based on my background and training experience.





Offensive Security - Penetration Testing Training with Kali Linux (PWK)

Of all the training listed on this site, this was the very first, and what started me on the journey that I am on today. I also obtained the OSCP before other certifications listed on this site.



Virtual Hacking Labs

I joined right after getting my OSCP and apparently right after they went live. I loved the PDF materials and the lab machines reminded me of PWK and brought back some of those memories and excitement of getting 'root' on a box.



Practical Pentest Labs

Forgot about this one too. And while I don't plan to review this one, I signed up, logged in, and worked a few of the boxes (if my memory serves me correctly). I do recall there was something I wasn't happy with at the time, but this was so long ago that I am sure whatever it was has been changed.



Hack The Box - VIP

Not really a course, and not reviewed on this site, but I signed up, logged in, signed up for VIP and have loved every single minute of it. They do an amazing job!



eLearnSecurity - Penetration Testing Professional (PTP)

I signed up for a bundle deal and got PTP and WAPT at the same time. I believe I went through these slides first. When the upgrade came out, I purchased it, and went through the slides. I even opted for the upgrade to the class when it was released. I plan to finish this course soon!



eLearnSecurity - Web Application Penetration Testing (WAPT)

I signed up for a bundle deal and got WAPT and PTP at the same time. I went through these slides after PTP. I even opted for the upgrade to the class when it was released. I plan to finish this course soon!



eLearnSecurity - Penetration Testing Student (PTS)

I got this at either the same time I got the PTP/WAPT deal or shortly thereafter. I started going through these slides and may have finished them. I plan to finish this course soon!



Millennium Corporation (which is now k>fivefour) - Red Team Apprentice™ Course (RTAC)

The company I was working for at the time sent me to this course. I learned new ways of doing things, and I also noticed I lacked some knowledge which led me to the next set of classes. I also remember going through the eLearnSecurity courses I had purchased after this course, and based off timing it was probably the PTP upgrade and the WAPT upgrade.



Offensive Security - Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (AWAE)

I signed up for this course, paid out of pocket for it, and had a great experience. But I still felt a gap of knowledge was missing after my time in the lab ran out.



Pentester Academy - Windows Red Team Lab

Enter Pentester Academy's Red Team Labs. I can never speak highly enough about these Pentester Academy courses. The amount of knowledge I learned from all of them is priceless. I started with the Windows Red Team Lab, and put too much time in going through slides and videos and not enough in the actual lab.



Pentester Academy - Attacking and Defending Active Directory Lab

My time ended in the Windows Red Team Lab, and I really felt I needed some more time and practice with the Active Directory and PowerShell topics. Again, I can't speak highly enough about these Pentester Academy courses.



eLearnSecurity - Exploit Development Student (XDS)

This was a spur of the moment purchase. It was released, and I jumped at the chance to get it at a discount. Plus, there was talk of maybe getting the employer to pay for Offensive Security's Cracking the Perimeter. So I grabbed this and started going through the slides, and I still pull them up every so often and go through them. I plan to finish this course soon!



Pentester Academy - Global Central Bank: An Enterprise Cyber Range (GCB)

When I got the e-mail that about this course, I was so excited. And this was by far the most complex, most fun course I have taken to date. Again, I can't speak highly enough about these Pentester Academy courses.



Hack The Box - Offshore

I signed up for this about a month after I signed up for GCB, and at a time I thought I was going to have to end GCB half way through the materials. I think at times I was working Offshore and GCB at the same time, just different hours of the same day.



Hack The Box - RastaLabs

I ended Offshore on a high note, some people at work were talking about RastaLabs, and I jumped in and had a bad experience... I revisited it, and had a better experience, just need to jump back in and complete it. I plan to finish this course soon!



Pentester Academy - Attacking Active Directory with Linux

I signed up for this course because I was not able to afford Offensive Security's Cracking the Perimeter, and I knew the course would be good, but I didn't expect to learn as much as I did.



k>fivefour - Red Team Journeyman™ Course (RTJC)

My current employer agreed to send me to this course after several of my co-workers 'went to bat for me' and got my bosses to agree to this. I found out about going a few days after signing up for Attacking Active Directory with Linux.



Sektor7 - RED TEAM Operator: Malware Development Essentials Course

One of the guys in my k>fivefour - Red Team Journeyman™ Course (RTJC) highly recommended this course, so I signed up. I have gone through a few of the videos, but will be going through it in depth soon. I plan to finish this course soon!



CyberWarFare - Red Team Adversary Simulation Labs

I had exactly 15 days before my new lab time for my upgrade to Offensive Security - Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (AWAE) started, and this sounded so cool. I really short changed myself with such a quick experience, and I regret that.



Offensive Security - Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation (AWAE) v1.5

I signed up for the upgrade, and it has been well worth the $99 that I paid.



Hack The Box - Cybernetics

I ended RastaLabs, and I moved stright in to Cybernetics and had a wonderful experience!! This is a great straight forward labs. I didn't encounter any crazy tricks and challeneges. Just a pure fun red team operator training lab.



Sektor7 - RED TEAM Operator: Malware Development Essentials Course

The ability to custom build tools that evade A/V became a critically needed skill when I started Hack The Box's RastaLabs, and was again needed when I started Hack The Box's Cybernetics. I only see this skill becoming more and more critical as time passes. I was looking to dive deeper in to the programming part of this game, and a co-worker highly recommended this class. I signed up and finally got around to finishing the course, and I am glad I did.



Sektor7 - RED TEAM Operator: Malware Development Intermediate Course

This course builds upon Sektor7's RED TEAM Operator: Malware Development Essentials Course, and while I still had the first course fresh on my mind, I jumped in head first.



Hack The Box - Dante

I just signed up for Dante. I took advantage of the year end discount and signed up. I have no clue what the new year will bring, and didn't want to jump in to APTLabs like I originally planned, so I went ahead and signed up for Dante (hoping it won't be as intense as APTLAbs).
