About This Course

Ready to take your Red Team tradecraft to the next level? Take a 10-day deep dive into our Red Team Journeyman Course. Apprentice-certified operators can expand their cyber skill set over the course of eight instruction days, learning how to gain initial access, escalate privileges, pivot between domains, and create complex TCP/IP tunnels through Linux machines to compromise hardened enclaves.

As with all k>fivefour courses, our instructors take a hands-on approach. Students will benefit from a combination of live, interactive lectures and applied learning across 37 individual labs and more than 40 virtual machines within the lab network. At the end of the course, students will be expected to put their knowledge to the test during a two-day certification exam. Students must demonstrate what they learned during their scenario-based Red Team course instruction in a lab environment, and all exams are audited for proper Red Team tradecraft. 

Students wanting to enroll in the Red Team Journeyman Course must first be certified in our Red Team Apprentice Course, have experience using command line applications, demonstrate advanced experience with networking, possess a basic understanding of TCP/IP tunnels, and have a basic understanding of programming principles such as logic tests, control statements, and variables.
