What is Mentored Learning? [Applied Penetration Testing Level 1]

Tagged Under:

Do you want to learn how to conduct a professional penetration test?

You’re not alone.

And by the end of this article you’ll know what your current options are, and why mentored learning is the hottest trend in penetration testing courses.

So, what is Blended Learning?

I’ll define blended learning in a second…

But, first, lets look at what blended learning is NOT…

1. It’s NOT sitting in a classroom for hours on end struggling to keep up with the instructor.
2. It’s NOT sitting at home by yourself not having anyone there to help you.
3. It’s NOT paying expensive fees to attend a “bootcamp” in a city that is nowhere near where you live, or paying through the nose to enroll in a self study course.

Blended Learning Defined

Blended learning is where you learn in part through online self study (in your own time, and at your own pace), and part through personalized correspondence with our professional instructor.
