At the top of the Library page in the OffSec Learning Platform you can find the New Releases section. Here, you will be able to see a preview of all new content added to the Offsec Learning Library.
We also have a new feature which is the “Search bar” to look for a specific topic that interests you.
On the main Library page, under Filters, enable the My content toggle. You will now only be able to see the topics included in your active, purchased product.
Note: The My content toggle only shows for logged in users.
Once you are ready to see all content available in the OffSec Learning Library, you can disable the My content toggle.
Additional information: If a Learner purchases a new subscription or bundle (new products), the content will only appear under the “My Content” toggle switch after 30 minutes.
The Filters allow you to narrow down your search specifically related to what you’re looking for. You can combine filters to further narrow down the search or clear all filters if you need to start from the beginning.
The filters available are:
With Job Roles, topics are grouped together so that learners can easily develop their skills for specific job roles, such as, Network Penetration Tester, Exploit Developer, etc.
With this filter, you can look to further develop your expertise based on specific skills such as Exploit Development or Penetration Testing, as a few examples.
You also have the flexibility to arrange the displayed content according to your specific study requirements, for example, if you are short on time, you may choose to only explore Learning modules.
Additionally, you can opt for either a list or tile view for your preferred visual representation.
The easiest way to navigate to a Course or Learning Path is via the “Explore” button in the OffSec Library Platform.
The Courses menu displays a list of all the courses available, regardless if you have purchased them or not so you may select the main course you have paid for.
Similarly, the Learning Paths menu displays a list of all Learning Paths available.
OffSec offers a series of labs that are independent of any Courses or Learning Paths:
Learners can access these labs via the “Explore” drop-down available at the top left of the Offsec Learning Platform.
Note: OffSec Cyber Range can only be seen under the Labs menu if you have an active Learn Enterprise subscription.
The search box is located at the top of the page, next to the “Explore” button.
HOTKEY: Command or Shift + /
You can search any Courses, Modules, Topics or keywords (ie. PEN-200, Penetration testing, WEB-200 etc). The functionality will also provide recommendations where it shows a suggested list of 6 most relevant search results, as well as the number of total results corresponding to the term searched.
While using the search functionality, you can view the results based on your own preferences (tile or list view). Kindly remember that the results showing are the courses or materials relevant to your searched topic.
You also have the ability to filter your search results via the Filters option and your search results may vary depending on your chosen filter.
