I have taken the course through Redvolutions. The class was very good. The instructors really knew their stuff. Alot of 
information for a week class. Most days we started at about 8am and finished up around 6pm, including Friday. My 
company actually had them come in and do a private class. ReDvolutions has created a portable lab so you are using the 
tools as if it were a real network. Unfortunately, due to some limitation of our facility on our part we were not able 
to take the OPST exam. ReDvolutions is working with us to reschedule the exam. I would recommend this course to anyone 
interested in security testing. My .02

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 

I would appreciate hearing about your experiences. Thank you.
