With a total duration of 35 teaching hours, divided between 20 hours of practical training and 15 hours of theoretical material, you will be able to benefit from the most complete, up-to-date and low-cost introductory course to Ethical Hacking on the market. You will be able to follow the course from the comfort of your home, according to your own schedule and at your own pace. You will have a total of 12 months to finish the theoretical part and 3 more months for the practical part.

The course covers general cybersecurity concepts, the basic operation of Kali Linux with its various tools, and the phases of an ethical hacking cycle. Subsequently, a practical task of an intrusion to two current computer systems, is undertaken in a controlled environment using the methodology and phases of ethical hacking that will be explained throughout the course.

To take the course it is advisable that the student has some basic user-level knowledge of computers. It is also advisable for the student to have access to a computer with at least an i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and an Internet connection in order to download all the labs and material from the e-learning platform.

In order to obtain the Certificate of Training the student must take a 15-question multiple-choice exam with a pass mark of 60% or higher. In addition, a practical exam must be taken, which must be passed with a minimum grade of 65%. The corresponding certificate will be provided through a badge validation platform, simplifying its presentation to various interested entities.
