The same material taught at BlackHat—now available on-demand.

This course content has historically been offered exclusively at BlackHat for $4,000. GTK is partnering with us to make this content more accessible through an on-demand experience. We'll launch our on-demand (beta) version of the course soon and will make improvements based on student feedback.

How Beta Will Work

By enrolling in our beta experience for this on-demand offering, you'll be required to provide us feedback on the course when requested.

In return for helping us shape the course for future enrollees, we'll give you a steep discount—and lifetime access to the course content, including updates and improvements.

You'll get

  • Early access to the prerequisite course (an exclusive offering of the beta version of this course)
  • Recordings of the instructors presenting the material to you similar to a live experience
  • A private Discord channel with other enrolled students—and access to Level Effect's Discord community
  • A private Discord channel with GTK and Level Effect instructors to share your feedback directly with them
  • Access to the course material forever—including updates and tweaks as they're made
  • Early access to the final exam (you'll get two exam attempts) and badging 
  • Bonus for Level Effect alumni: Get an additional 20% off the discounted beta price and the future price—$320 now, or $680 when the course is out of beta.

What You'll Learn—and Earn

Students can expect to learn about the topics detailed below. Each module will contain hands-on labs using real-world data sets.

Each student will have two attempts to pass the final exam. Upon successful completion, students will earn a badge.


Because this course is in beta, we're offering it at a fraction of the cost it will run in the future.

We're partnering with GTK to bring this on-demand beta experience to students for $800 $400 for a limited time.

Please note that the beta price of this course is non-refundable. However, you'll have lifetime access to the course content as we improve it!
