Gideon,

I took ReDvolution's OPST class last month while on their Cruise Class.  I must say that I was at first skeptical about 
taking a class on a cruise, but I found that the privacy from the real world helped out in order to concentrate.  I 
liked the fact of their "one payment is all inclusive" plan.  I paid one fee and they covered everything!  Meals, 
lodging, everything.  (Even outside the cruises)

The OPST class is a week long class that not only walks you through the OSSTMM, but also gives you the background on 
the minimum tools you would need to conduct a Penetration test.  They identify MANY more tools that you can use but 
they don't have enough time to cover in the class.  (See below for more on that.)  

The instructors are very knowledgable and their talent for keeping the atmosphere in the class light is excellent!!  
They always make time for the one on one help that ensures your on track and understand where the class is up to that 
point.

My overall feedback grade for the class... A+

For the extra tools, I've learned that they are putting together a class for just Security Tools.  I can't wait to take 
that class too!

If you have questions feel free to contact me directly at my email above.

I am considering the OPST certification from ReDvolution Technologies. 
It is based on the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual - 
OSSTMM (http://www.isecom.org/projects/osstmm.shtml).

Has anyone taken their applied penetration testing course 
(http://www.thinkingred.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=print&ceid=23&redi=training_sub2.jpg)?
