      Definitely a positive development for the cert: eCPPT Gold Certification  🙂

      Once valid credentials have been provided for the certification platform, the candidate will be able to perform the tests from the comfort of their home or office. An Internet connection and VPN software is necessary to carry out the exam

      I have seen this set up somewhere else…

      eLearnSecurity’s eCPPT Gold is the only certification for Penetration testers that evaluates your abilities at attacking your target and providing thorough professional documentation and recommendation.

      Come on! Offensive Security has been doing it for years now…

      I think this is a very good thing that eCPPT is migrating to this exam set up. However, they really are copying OS idea, so they shouldn’t act as if they are the only one doing it…

      “All ECPPT Silver professionals and ALL students with a valid Silver voucher (non expired, not failed in their last attempt) will be given a FREE Gold voucher. (commercial value of the voucher : $400)” Armando mentioned on LinkedIn.

      “We are the only one doing a real *pentest* as exam. If you don’t get the difference between pentest and hacking, try smarter (harder was trademarked).”

      I’m confused by this comment? How is the OSCP exam not a real “pentest” exam?

      @Armando: I have obviously offended you and I appologize for this. I re-read my post and it was indeed quite insulting. So I am sorry about this.

      I think you are doing a great job on your end and I am seriously considering practicing in your lab. As you know, both Offensive Security and eLearnSecurity are receiving good comments on this site. I just felt you were not the only one doing this…

      We are the only one doing a real *pentest* as exam. If you don’t get the difference between pentest and hacking, try smarter (harder was trademarked).

      So, could you elaborate more on the differences between the two?

      Thanks and again, sorry about that, my post was really insulting for you…

      Armando:

      Hope this message finds you well! I was checking the gold cert and it says that the engagement will include web apps to be tested (I imagine both manually and with other tools or Nessus) – My question is Do you recommend getting back to Coliseum and Hack.me to practice or Hera will provide the full experience of what I should encounter during the test?

      Thanks in advance,

      Jose

      Hi Armando

      With the exam, what is the timeframe, how long do you have to do it?

      I know with OSCP you have 24 hours to do the penetration, then another 24 hours to submit the report.

      Good to see another test that really tests skill, not just memory.

      7 days to pentest, 7 days to prep your report.

      I have untaken eCPPT Silver and Gold exam vouchers. I am torn between taking the silver exam or not  🙂
      Do you recommend to still take the Silver exam? or should I just prepare for the Gold exam and let the silver exam expire?

      Also, between the two exams, is there any differences between the two aside from the number of days to submit the report? (I’m not sure, but  if this question might tear fairness of the certification, then please no need to answer it  🙂 )

      Since gold certification is up now, what will happen to eCPPT silver certified person? Will their certification expire if they don’t take the gold certification?

      Apologies if there are too many question. 🙂

      Thanks a lot. Cheers!

      I would still do the silver if you have the time. You’ll be covering the necessary material anyhow preparing for the gold. It’ll also give you additional experience report writing.

      The silver exam is pretty much focused entirely on the content of the Web App module, whereas the gold exam covers all three modules.

      The silver certification will not expire.

      If you haven’t already, I’d suggest having a read through the eLearnSecurity forums.
