INTERVIEW

TRAINEE TESTIMONIAL

The ASTP first caught my attention for its small cohort size - the instructors’ attention would not be stretched thin and the coaching was more personalised. The tailored curriculum suits current industry needs and ensures our skills relevancy and attractiveness to potential employers. The SANS and OSCP certifications sponsored by Red Alpha are very helpful in reinforcing the course content, as well as giving a big boost to our resume.
