OSCP certification is an ethical hacking accreditation that uniquely requires to demonstrate both hands-on penetration testing skills as well as passing a final certification exam. Offensive Security offers OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional) certification. To become OSCP certified, candidates must complete the Offensive Security’s Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PwK) course (PEN-200). The course is offered in two self-paced or live formats and consists of videos, PDFs, lab assignments, and lab access. The OSCP certification exam lasts 23 hours and 45 minutes. Candidates are exposed to real-world, hands-on penetration testing on an isolated VPN exam network with five victim hosts and must demonstrate their ability to defend a system successfully. A significant feature of OSCP certification is that OSCP holders do not need to re-qualify nor earn continuing education credits.
