Learn Fundamentals is a yearly subscription that provides access to:
- All 100-level courses (PEN-100, WEB-100, SOC-100, and future courses).
- The PEN-210 content and an OSWP certification attempt.
- The PEN-103 content and a KLCP certification attempt.
Learn Fundamentals is recommended for both organizations that want to identify, train and prepare talent, as well as individual students that want to prepare for an entry-level security job role or for higher level content.
Can Learn Fundamentals be used for IT security training, for example for system administrators and developers?
Yes! Learn Fundamentals is for direct security professionals, and also for other technical professionals that need security training.
Exam attempts purchased as part of the Learn Fundamentals subscription will expire at the end of the subscription period.
While 100-level courses do not have the traditional 24/48h exams or certifications, we have built assessments which will allow students to understand the level of content they have assimilated .
Students who pass an assessment will receive a digital badge.
Note, only the PEN-100 assessment and badge have been released so far. More assessments and badges coming soon.

You will have access to all the materials online for as long as your subscription remains active.

When purchasing a subscription, your access to the content will start from the moment you submitted the payment and completed the identity verification process.
