    Amazing OSCP bootcamp

    Pros: The course was amazing, it created a solid push for me to obtain the OSCP certification. I've acquired new and valuable skills and techniques, which will be surely helpful for me in the future career. Other than that, I've met new friends, who shares the same goals, we talked and shared things with each other, which meant a lot to me.

    Transitioning from graphic design to cybersecurity

    I recently transitioned from graphic design to cyber security, and I'm grateful for Evolve Academy's support. Despite no prior IT knowledge, the transition was smooth due to their comprehensive assistance. Step-by-step guidance, teacher availability, and recorded lectures provided a personalized and flexible learning experience. Collaborative classes pushed me out of my comfort zone, and concerns about isolation were alleviated by a supportive virtual community. Mike, an exceptional teac...

    Is it the right choice?

    I was somewhat unsure when I started the bootcamp.  There are so many options out there, was I making the right choice?  After starting, my choice was confirmed again and again.  The instructors were experts in their field, the content was thorough, the TA's showed interest in helping others and I learn, alumni were generous in helping and networking, and even others in the industry had heard good things about Evolve Academy.  All in all, a choice well made.

    Challenging, well developed cybersecurity bootcamp

    My review is for an all online cybersecurity bootcamp, Evolve Security Academy. From the very beginning, it was a great experience. There were challenges along the way, but I feel so empowered after completing the course to pursue a career in cybersecurity. Instructors were great, labs were very useful, and they do a great job preparing students to get into the cyber workforce.

    EVOLVE SECURITY OSCP Bootcamp-review

    I really enjoyed the class.  It is run by a great group of instructors who really want you to succeed.  They take the time out to answer even the most nagging questions you might have floating around.   I recommend this class for anyone who wants to get into Penetration Testing and pass the OSCP.  It gives you tons of hands on and you get access to Offsec Learn One for a year as well.  PEN-200 but you get so much more to practice on like proving grounds etc.  If your serious, then this i...

    Great hands-on experience

    This is a great boot camp for getting a well-rounded education to prepare for an entry-level career in cyber security. The instructors were amazing! Great support, very timely. The one thing people need to realize before jumping into something like this is that this company is a business and like all businesses, they are in it to make money. That being said, I feel that the salesperson that I worked with was a little too "Cyber jobs are falling out of the sky!" and not as realistic as to...

    Cybersecurity

    I started the bootcamp with limited knowledge about IT and cybersecurity and in 6 months my knowledge has increased ten fold. The instructors were so personable and engaging and used real life scenarios and knowledge to enrich each learning topic that was covered. The bootcamp covered many aspects of Cybersecurity and allowed students to get a holistic thinking of the different areas. Every question was encouraged and every student was eager to learn and happy to study with me ev...

    Great Remote Bootcamp

    I found that the classes being live helped a lot, especially the time they were held as worked perfectly for my work schedule.  I feel more confident to acquire a security based IT role with the new knowledge and resources gained. I was recommended this by a former coworker and I've really enjoyed it.  I will be recommending it for anyone I know who may want to go into cybersecurity.
