O instituto Chales Sturt University está disponibilizando um curso de 4 semanas sobre pen testing que será ministrado agora em fevereiro pelo professor Jeremy Koster (abaixo as qualificações dele), o conteúdo parece ser bem focado no tema, além disso será realizado um CTF (Capture the Flag) durante o treinamento, ou seja, será bem prático, segue o conteúdo programatico do curso:

Who will present the webinars?
This course was developed by Jeremy Koster. Jeremy has over 20 years of experience in IT with 15 years specialising in Cyber Security within large enterprises. Jeremy has a range of security qualifications including GIAC Penetration Testing (GPEN), CISM, CISSP, PCIP, GCIH, CEH and CHFI and completed his Masters of Information System Security with Charles Sturt University (CSU) in 2006. He is a CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer and has been an industry based, part time lecturer with CSU since 2011.
This course includes a practical element during which you can earn ‘flags’ that will assist with the final exam.

How will the ‘capture the flag’ challenge work?

The capture the flag challenge is based on freely available resources which will be part of the final exam. You will be required to identify a number of flags hidden inside a vulnerable system. This includes challenges such as web application vulnerability exploitation and password cracking. While flags will be unique to this exam and you will be provided with a vulnerable virtual box image the week before the exam to give enough time to obtain the flags. Links to online guides on how to complete the capture the flag exercise will be provided.

What is the aim of this short course?

The aim of the short course is to give you a ‘taster’ of what it is like to undertake postgraduate study via Online Education with Charles Sturt University. The short course is a shorter version of a full-length subject that you will study to obtain a Master of Cyber Security from Charles Sturt University.

Is there a final exam?

Yes — the short course exam will be a timed, open book exam that you will sit at your computer. 

Will I get the opportunity to apply what I have learnt during the course?

Yes — there is a practical element that requires students to break into a known vulnerable system within a safe environment. This will allow the students to put the techniques discussed in the webinars to practice in their own lab.

Do I get a completion certificate if I complete the course?

Yes — provided you receive a pass mark (50% or over) for course assessment, which comprises the exam and any available participation marks.
The certificate reflects the grade you receive, which mirrors those you would receive in a full length subject; 50 and over is a Pass, 65 and over is a Credit, 75 and over is a Distinction, and 85 and over is a High Distinction. 

Will the course qualify me for university credit?

Successful completion of three IT Masters Free Short Courses may make you eligible for university credit. For more information on university credit with Charles Sturt University, please visit this webpage.  

Will I need to purchase any study materials to complete the course?

No — all essential materials will be supplied.

 Will the webinars be recorded?

Yes — all webinars are recorded and you will be able to access them, and all other free course materials, by registering for the course.
