    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...

    Glad I picked this one!

    The overarching experience beginning to end was amazing. From the interaction between the whole class to the amazing instructor Mike Creaney, I've made friends for life and established a real love for security technology!

    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.

    Skill-based Learning

    Evolve Security Academy provides the structured support necessary for learning the fundamentals of cybersecurity. We learned AWS basics, traffic analysis with Wireshark, pentesting methods, and cybersecurity frameworks to give students a well-rounded perspective of the profession. I feel that with this course I am now ready to enter the infosec workforce.

    Cybersecurity analyst

    I came into this program knowing nothing about cybersecurity and now I feel confident in so many things I didn't even know existed. I got to know a lot of people and connect with them on LinkedIn. I am an introverted person but this helped me get in contact with so many people not even in the cohort. I am thankful and honored to have gone through this program and appreciate anyone that helped me along the way. I highly recommend Evolve Academy to anyone interested in cybersecurity!

    Evolve OSCP Bootcamp (live - online)

    As a complete beginner in cybersecurity and pentesting in general this class was amazing. It layed down the fundamentals very well and in an easy to understand way. The instructors were very helpful and open to questions and more than happy to help your learning along the way. Though I lacked any experience or training beforehand I found this class very intuitive and on point for getting the knowledge needed to get started on my pentesting journey. Would highly recommend for anyo...

    Security Apprentice

    I had an awesome experience at Evolve Security. 
    When COVID happened, I got furloughed from being an operations manager and it kind of pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me want to do something different. I decided to invest in my career by gambling with enrolling in a cybersecurity bootcamp. Initially, I had couple other options as well but decided to go with Evolve since not only they're a top-ranked bootcamp but because they have a very student-centric curriculum, and that w...

    A little of everything, and a lot of fun!!

    My experience with Evolve will never be forgotten! Personally I did not have any type of an IT background and this bootcamp had everything I needed to start my journey. The lectures and labs were easy to digest, but also became increasingly more difficult as the course continued. Purposefully done so that the instructors can see how you handle challenges as well as guide you in the correct direction, this also was helpful in creating your own personal methodology for certain tasks.
