While the courses are self-paced and self-directed that do not have any official support, we do invite you to join our Offsec Community Chat Platform where you can connect, collaborate, and chat with your fellow students, the Offsec staff, and infosec professionals as you go through the course. For more information, please visit: Offensive Security Community Chat User Guide
In addition, we also have our student forums, where you might find help if needed: Offensive Security Forums
If you experience any technical problems connecting to, or working with the labs, please contact our Administrators via Discord in the #otl-support channel or email our Help Department at: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: This email is for technical support and not for assistance with course exercises.)
