Most of that guide is about building IT skills generally rather than pentesting skills specifically.
Curious to know what you perceive as being an overall good pentester? My definition of a thorough, good, and reliable pentester is someone who is versatile, can adapt and is experienced in a wide array of technologies.
So while you can wet your feet with content in books like CounterHack reloaded, that's all they're really good for.
I was only commenting that your tutorial assumes that someone is starting from the beginning rather than from a strong networking/sysadmin skill base.
I'm actually working and have been working on getting some stuff together a-la Moodle and GoToMeeting to train people but its not based on any cert. More like a "hacking without borders" type of class using Rosetta Stone like methods of penetration testing, forensics and counterforensics all rolled in one. Zero fluff and no re-hashed information but not sure of the appeal it would have since there would be no cert to achieve in taking the course.
Been throwing the idea around for some time, actually made the Moodle site, some modules, and so forth, just been swamped with other training priorities.modules, and so forth, just been swamped with other training priorities.
