Courses in network pentesting

Hi all !
As Christmas is coming i would like to apply for courses in networking pentesting but i don't know which one i should go for.
As i said on previous posts i have some good knowledge in C language, my python is not bad, i've learnt some stuff on metasploit, nmap but didn't write my exploits.

So if you have any idea it'll be very helpfull
thanks !

OSCP might be a good choice.

Re: Courses in network pentesting

n3r, PWB/OSCP is a great course and I would highly recommend it :)

I have a video and write-up on the exploit development process which can be found on my website at http://www.thexero.co.uk/exploit-development/

I was proficient in the majority of tools on BackTrack (including nmap and metasploit) but there is alot more to break into a computer than just being able to use some tools.

If you get a chance drop by #intern0t on irc.freenode.net and we can set you up for my hacker CTF challenge and you'll see what I mean xD

Being proficient in Python isn't necessary for oscp, but it does help and personally I had built 2 exploits from scratch before I started pwb which definitely helped when it came to the exploit development modules :)

if I get enough funding, the only course I will enroll is OSCP.

Yeah and take your time with the labs, I spent a while in Mod 4 but now everything is automated got some wicked bash scripts :-D.  It will by far be the best class you ever take.

Re: Courses in network pentesting

I second the other's opinions, OSCP is the best choice - not just because you will learn a lot of stuff, the experience of the exam is "everything" ...
Security+, OSCP, CISM, CISSP
