Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some reviews from our clients:

My name is Greg Dreelin, and I am currently working as an Information Security and Risk Management Analyst for the Department of Veterans Affairs. In 2009 I took the Certified Penetration Testing Specialist (CPTS) and the Certified Penetration Testing Engineer / Consultant (CPTE/C) from the Mile2 training academy. Both of these courses help to build on my current understanding of how to perform a specialized penetration assessment of a client’s network infrastructure. In addition, it proved to be an invaluable asset in the design and creation of putting a professional penetration testing team together with all the skillsets required to perform the assessment. Mile2’s courses are first rate in training and professionalism among the many other training companies that are out there with similar certification. Prior to attending the Mile2 courses I had received my Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification, which the CPTS and CPTE/C built on increasing my skills as a security auditor. These courses were an excellent stepping stone to the next levels of security auditing from the basic CEH certification because they are design from the aspect of performing an assessment from end to end, as well as the team requirements for the assessment.

I have been working with Mile2 since my time in the Marine Corps as an Information Security Chief and after as a contractor for the Marine Corps Blue Team Lead. I have had Mile2 come out to perform several CPTS courses at our facilities in Quantico, VA and each time I had received positive feedback from all of our military students. All of their instructors were proficient and extremely knowledgeable in information security auditing and had a firm grasp on the knowledge taught in the courses. I had sat in many of these courses during that time they had provided training in our center and found the information to be top notch in real world examples and learning. The CPTS was fairly an add-on to the CEH with more hands-on and real world scenarios for performing security audits. The CPTE/C was a bit more advanced by designed for mainly the leadership role of a penetration testing team. This course gives the types of roles that are needed during an assessment as well as most on the legal issues required to perform a security audit in professional manor. I highly recommend taking both of these courses to help in the growth of knowledge for a security assessment team.

Certified Penetration Testing Specialist (now CPTEngineer)

I attended the CPTS course at C-TREC in Houston from July 10 to July 14, taught by Michael Gregg.
As a security professional I have several certifications, like MCSE 2003 +security, Security+ and the EC-Council's Certified Ethical Hacker.The reason that I was still looking for a pentest training, was because of the fact that after the CEH training I felt that I wasn't ready to do the actual thing.
Needless to say that I am feeling really happy that I could participate in Mile2's training program. In fact it was by far the best training that I have ever attended. I think that the big difference between the CEH and CPTS certification is that the CEH program provides you with a lot of tools (which you can find yourself on the internet) where the CPTS program teaches you actually how to use them in a structured manner.
They do that by providing you with up-to-date materials (which are put together by security professionals) and real challenging hands-on exercises which make you understand the tools and the methodology of pentesting.
Although the CEH class was taught by a very good teacher who used more of his own materials then the EC's (because the CEH materials were out of date or full of errors) the CPTS training was thoughtfully put together and with the hands-on exercises it was made easy to understand the different parts of doing a pentest.

I bought the CPTE courseware kit about 2 months ago to self learn, this was kinda a new topic for me even though i have been doing IT for many years. I have enjoyed the course which came with the 3 manuals and various tools on cds so there was lots of reading and experimenting. i found this to be a interesting topic overall though and have to say i have learned many new things since beginning this course, but i did find the exam harder than i expected i guess it makes it a little more rewarding though when you finally pass it ;) And i just want to say thanks to the staff at mile2® for there help.

Certified Digital Forensics Engineer
The instructor was great! I do part time teaching at a local college and am adapting some of her styles to my presentations. The Forensics training on September 13, 2010 was exceptional. Genevieve Turner was a fantastic instructor and knew the subject matter inside and out. Her relating to real world experience brought the information full circle... I was able to use techniques learned to recover 2449 files for a coworker from a corrupt DVD.

Certified Penetration Testing Engineer
Instructor: James Michael Stewart

The instructor was excellent and ranks tops in the 100+ classes that I have taken over my 21 years in the field. He did a great job of teaching, answering questions and working through the labs. He made himself very available to the students and responded to e-mail questions in a very timely manner. I would give him an A+. The training course and lab were great. The instructor was excellent as well.

Review: Certified Penetration Testing Specialist - CPTS
The Certified Penetration Testing Specialist (CPTS) class is an excellent way to gain a basic introduction to the seventeen aspects of network penetration evaluation. Perhaps its greatest strength is that by it's step-by-step process, it clearly elucidates why each part of the IT infrastructure is so important for securing the IT enterprise. Each weakness in the infrastructure provides a potential that a penetration tester (and potential hacker) can expose (and make use of). One begins to see that every part of the network becomes so critical and how network security policy needs to include every single person in an organization.
CPTS is an excellent way of gaining a fuller understanding of the penetration testing methodology. Not only are the instructors extremely helpful in class, they are an excellent source of material for continuing work towards network penetration testing. The instructor set up additional materials for the
class which I found very helpful for the in class exercises.
The instructor for the CPTS class was top notch. He thoroughly knew his subject matter and was able to patiently explain every aspect of penetration testing and how they interrelated. The material was a real eye opener and his careful, methodical approach was not only easy to
understand, but also provided a very clear understanding of the process of penetration testing. His real life experience that he brought to the class was very helpful in understanding what it means to be a penetration tester. He even provided important web sites to locate penetration-testing tools.
But perhaps the best thing about the CPTS class is that they teach a way of thinking about penetration testing. By learning about all the aspects of the penetration testing, one learns about how the penetration tester works and thus provides a perspective that is helpful for understanding how both systems and network security postures (and policies) influence overall IT security.

The teacher was great ! He was very knowledgeable and could always answer and explain the toughest questions. The lab environment was put together well and really helped in understanding the different parts of actually doing a pentest.

Without any doubt I soon will take the CPTE course.
