So far I must say i've really enjoyed this course.  It does get frustrating at times trying to figure some stuff out on your own but the forums and Google help you get through it.  Finished up the lab part and scheduled the certification challenge so we'll see how it goes but definitely a great hands on training course.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

This course definitely looks interesting, but i need to take a couple of Microsoft exams to finish up my mcse before i get too it.

My only concern is putting this onto my resume with no actual work experience in this area, would this put of potential employers if I wasn't going for a pen test type job? (i'm just starting up in this area and want to get to grips with it all before pushing for a career in it) I guess i could always leave it off my resume.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

Always put your accomplishments on your resume. Here's a few thoughts:

1. You never know who will find what valuable.
2. Even if it has the tiniest bit of relevence to your desired career path, it has value. But...
3. Don't give it more value than it really has. OK maybe a little more, but just because it is on your resume doesn't mean that you are claiming it as experience. Put it in the training and education section.

Those in a position to hire for tech jobs (especially if they have tech experience themselves) love to see that you are taking an active role in your own career in your spare time. That shows drive, initiative, willingness to learn and more.

So put it on there and don't look back.

Hope this helps,

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

I was informed today that I passed the certification challenge for OSCP.  I really loved the course and can't wait to try another one of their course... I highly recommend the hands on training.  Just some advice for people wishing to pursue the certification... don't waste time on something that you can't get or that isn't working right, just move on and come back if you have lab time or else you might fall behind.
