About the course

What our students say:

"How good is this course? 10 times better than CEH. The structure of the course is brilliant. It starts from legal compliance to hard core pen testing in a safe sand box environment. Hacker Fantastic is one of the best instructors you will ever come across who has a wide range of offensive security experience and used this to inspire your thirst for ethical hacking no matter your starting point.

Hands on Hacking is the best IT course I have ever done besides the theory I have learnt more practical skills in a shorter time than any previous course I have done. The part of the course that really throws you is when you engage in manual hacking. I enjoyed learning about scanning with nmap, doing fingerprinting, enumeration, zone transfer, privilege escalation and post exploitation on different systems. Hacking into web applications, database systems, unix and windows based servers was more than one can ask for.

I would endorse anyone curious about ethical hacking or desiring to further their career to pursue this course."

- Neil Applewhaite, Head of Computer Sci. at Enfield Grammar School

"I've certainly learned more than I expected to in four days, and I've noticed that I've altered my way of thinking when it comes to attacking a target to be more efficient and effective." -Paul Nisbett, Security Consultant "Coming from a solution and development background I found the course fascinating. Your technical comprehension will increase exponentially. I personally left the course with the knowledge that all the best practices I have employed over the years were not sufficient. If you're interested in penetration testing and/or security this course is a necessity!" -Camelia Enderby, Software Engineer

So what's this all about?

It's time to put on your finest roller blades, grab a cold jolt cola, then come and learn some practical skills to hack the planet.

The team at Hacker House™ provide hands-on networking and application labs, intended to stimulate your grey matter. We teach from years of experience on practical cyber-security assessment skills for the red team.

We teach you everything you need to learn about hacking with the most popular open-source tools, through tutor driven theory exercises, and practical labs.

Over the four days you will learn hacking basics and perform the following:

  • Conduct a network infrastructure assessment
  • Make use of data leaks and intelligence
  • Identify and exploit widespread vulnerabilities
  • Review web applications to find vulnerabilities
  • Make use of open-source tools to enhance your system security
  • Crack passwords, steal data and understand how hackers target networks
  • Hack into networks… ethically, without going to jail
  • Learn the tools of the trade used by ethical hackers

We teach hacking skills and require our attendees to agree to a code of conduct. The skills we teach are not academic and instead highlight real vulnerabilities in real systems. Techniques you learn on this course can be used outside of the classroom and we only teach those who use their newfound Kung-Fu for good.

Who is this course for?

Our course is purposefully aimed at those seeking to get an introduction into the world of ethical hacking be it for future employment or to enhance their existing skills at work.

The course will provide an introduction to the wonderful and exciting art of ethical hacking. Course attendees need a familiarity of Linux, be comfortable working with the command line and have a basic understanding of networking. Programming skills are an advantage but not essential. Our course is aimed at system administrators, network junkies and anyone else who wants to get a crash course in hands-on hacking. If security has become your responsibility at your work, or penetration tests are becoming too much of an overhead, then this course is ideal for you.

We teach you enough basic security assessment abilities, through practical hands-on hacking, so you will be able to get a better insight to vulnerabilities in your workplace and at home.

If you don't know your heart bleed from your shellshock, your local roots from your Apache remotes, or your SQL injection from a man-in-the-middle – then this is the course for you.

If you are able to master the concepts and lessons you should be able to conduct standard penetration tests. Giving you an advantage and understanding of issues faced in many cyber security roles. This course is not for the faint of heart; we work hard and fast to ensure you get all the concepts and materials you need to learn and begin a career in ethical hacking.

We give a Certificate of Achievement for all participants.

If you're not sure if this course is for you, we suggest taking a look at the sample module before booking to avoid disappointment.
