HackEd was founded to address a lack of accessible hands-on-keyboard training in the cybersecurity industry. Our curriculum development is led by Peter Kim, author of The Hacker Playbook, and our courses are taught by industry practitioners who are excited to teach you the technical skills that employers value.
HackEd is based in Arlington, Virginia, and is the only state-certified hands-on-keyboard cybersecurity training provider inside the Washington, DC beltway. Join us in class this Spring over our cloud-based platform, HackEdLabs.

Our curriculum is developed by Bud Roth, Daniel Ross, Tobias Mccurry, and Peter Kim, author of “The Hacker Playbook” series. Our lectures and written material are paired with a series of real-world labs on our virtual corporate network, HackEdLabs, to help you develop the skills employers need. Employers understand the value of certifications, but only if they’re backed by real skills.
HackEd provides you hands-on-keyboard training that is developed and delivered by industry practitioners. Our instructors understand the day-to-day requirements of security roles and are eager to share their knowledge and experiences with each class. During the program, you are encouraged to write your own tools, contribute to your Github repository, and participate in different bug bounty programs. Upon successful completion of the three courses, you will earn the HackEd Certified Red Teamer Level 1 certificate. We will also provide you with a roadmap of additional subjects to study to pass your CEH, GPEN, and OSCP.
This is not a series of online videos. This is not a comfortable academic program. This is not a course on cybersecurity policy. If you’re looking for an immersive experience where you will develop tangible skills that will make you better at your job and more employable, this is it.

Employers value certifications, but they are concerned that many certified professionals do not have real-world hands-on-keyboard experience. Most employers value a combination of real-world experience and traditional certifications. Many students are also frustrated that most certifications are book-oriented and do not provide a lab environment for practicing new techniques. Upon successful completion of our program, you will earn the HackEd certified Red Teamer Level 1 Certificate, and you will receive a roadmap of subjects to study to earn your CEH, GPEN, and OSCP certifications.
