    I agree with you here, however I went absolutely nuts doing the eJPT. I managed to do it in 2 weeks at a crazy pace, spending 8 hours a day on top of a full time job.

    So the problem now is I'm doing eCPPT at a much more relaxed pace, I did the first few labs months ago, so I'd rather start the labs over from the beginning as a refresher/practice for the exam.

    Anyone know how eCPPT compares to OSCP? I passed eJPT a few weeks ago without getting the materials, just the exam. I'm thinking of doing the same for eCPPT whilst I wait on the cooldown period for my OSCP resit.

    I have heard mixed comparisons between the two. OSCP is more well known and I think overall is more difficult. eCPPT holds you hand a lot more in the lab (labs provide solutions) - but I think their training material is good.

    If I had a little more experience and 90 days to completely dedicate to the course, I would have went for the OSCP. But since I don't, the eCPPT made more sense for me.

    Hey Schism,

    I've done both. There's some comparison and overlap (it's too much to re-type out). I suggest going through some of my previous posts. If you are an OSCP, you can pass the eCPPT Examination. Obviously I can't get into specifics on either of the examinations but I was given a free voucher for the eCPPT Gold (current version of the exam), being an eCPPT Silver Holder. It was suggested I upgrade my PTP material from v1 to v2 at the time to be able to acquire the skill set to stand a chance at the eCPPT Gold Exam. I took my free voucher and instead of upgrading my course material challenged it and was able to pass. I picked up my OSCP a few months before the eCPPT Silver and had it a couple years before eLearnSecurity revised and made the eCPPT exam a bit more of a challenge.

    Sufficeth to say, if you're on a cool down period from failing your OSCP examination - you obviously know what you need to brush up on to pass. The re-take fee is dirt cheap. Go back and pass it, opt-in purchase a voucher for the eCPPT and kick some ass. Don't forget about the OSCP and CRT Pen equivalency OSCP and CRT Equivalency | CREST - Ethical Security Testers

    Been a busy week but got a Kali VM spun up yesterday and should be finally be starting to get going on the course this week. Started watching the "Penetration Testing with Linux Tools" on CBTNuggets that last couple days while at work as well. Definitely interesting so far.

    Looks like they are doing a big announcement tomorrow. I suspect new course or a refresh of the PTP course.

    Likely version 2 of their Mobile Application Penetration Testing course. They haven't updated this one in years.

    Progress is somewhat stalled. Haven't had much time to lab - work has been crazy busy. Not to mention I was foolish enough to cover on-call for someone else, so I have been on call-back back to back rotations. Hopefully I can get back into it and get this course knocked out!

    Yea, https://www.elearnsecurity.com/resou...s/ptpv4-launch

    I've been going through the Systems Security section, really slowly the past couple weeks though. Combine nice weather and cabin trips and makes it tough! Hoping to start kicking this courses butt this week though.

    Thanks, I registered for the event ..

    When eWPT upgrade was released last year I think they gave 20 or 30 % discounts to attendees . I signed up but did not get the time to start the course. hopefully will complete it this year.

    Based on what I have read on their forums and from members who have gone through the upgrades in this past - a major revision like this won't be a free upgrade. Of course, they may provide the upgrade for free - you never know! I will be attending the webinar, I think in the past they have given some free upgrades out to those who attend.

    I originally wanted to hold off on the course until the update was released, but jumped the gun and got it. I will probably be upgrading either way.

    Did anyone say how much the upgrade ended up costing them before in the past?

    I'm assuming I'll end up purchasing the upgrade as well. They say they are giving out like 1000 prizes, hopefully alot of them are upgrades!

    I finished the PTSv3 a week ago and was going to jump into PTPv3 this fall, so I'll do the upgrade if it's reasonable or discounted. Waiting to see if I get picked to facilitate SEC560 in August.

    When I upgraded PTPv2 to PTPv3 the discount was 40%, upgrading WAPTv1 to WAPTv2 was 75%.

    ugh, still 60% of the original costs for the newer PTP. Not sure if I would be buying that or not, we'll see. Thanks for the info

    We will see what the upgrade cost is. I am hoping since they sold a LOT of PTP course during their anniversary sale they will give a steeper discount since that was fairly recent and all of those people have v3.
