Register to join the RangeForce online training program.

The offer is designed to meet the immediate needs of schools striving to deliver compelling online programs to students learning from home. It features over 120 online cybersecurity training modules and provides professors with access to all the training materials needed to create beginner through advanced lesson plans. It sets up in less than 24 hours and includes integrated assessment reports so professors can administer hands-on exams and help students identify areas of improvement.

RangeForce is used to assess and level up the skills of enterprise security and IT teams at global financial, manufacturing, healthcare, and government organizations. Role-based training modules include tracks on security operations such as: defending against DDOS, Botnets, SQLi attacks, using Nikto, Suricata, Nmap, and understanding Privilege Escalation, Regex, and SMTPD. Web Application Security Tracks cover cookie security, XSS, PHP exploitation and NodeJS Exploits. SecDevOps tracks include Apache, Docker, Nginx, and Linux CLI tutorials.

Each module contains a “hands-on” component to enhance learning and retention of the subject matter. For example, in the “Command Injection” training module, participants must use Linux commands through a command-line interface, interact with real webpages, and take specific and calculated actions to contain the attack to pass the module. Cyber skills are honed during increasingly difficult tutorials.

“As institutions rush to shift their cybersecurity programs online we know that instructors are scrambling to record lessons and create meaningful exercises,” said RangeForce President and CRO Gordon Lawson. “RangeForce enterprise and government customers have already battle-tested our on-demand, hands-on learning platform. They can attest to the depth of content in our modules and the breadth of security tools students can learn to work with right in our cloud-hosted platform. Because training the next generation of cyber professionals is so important, we wanted to make this solution affordable for any college to meet their online learning challenges immediately and in the upcoming summer and fall semesters.”

The special $150 offer is available for any current or part-time student immediately, and credit card purchases are accepted.
