RCSA (Reflare Certified Secure Administrators)

Trainees must apply each video lesson’s attack or defence technique in a live VM setting to move through the program.

Bypassing traditional exams and multiple-choice tests, RCSA delivers practical learning and hands-on experience in securing systems and networks.

Runs in the Cloud

You don't need to install anything. All lessons and challenges run entirely on Reflare's cloud infrastructure.

This means you can scale to any number of trainees without the concern of ongoing maintenance costs, client-side infrastructure, plug-ins or applications.


Pain Free Launch

You can add your trainees, set your completion dates, and leave the rest to us.

Your developers can take the program at a time that best suits their workflow. Whether on-site, travelling, or remote, the deployment and the completion of RCSA only require an internet connection and a web browser.

Work Ready Skills

We know administrators can only secure systems and networks if they understand how weaknesses are abused.

RCSA uses concise, easy-to-follow video lessons that teach both the practical attack and defence techniques for common web vulnerabilities.

The trainee must then demonstrate that they can translate this understanding into practice in the real world.


Hands-on Testing

After each lesson, Reflare boots a VM (virtual machine) that contains a proprietary challenge.

To advance to the next lesson, the trainee must successfully either attack or defend the system against the taught vulnerability, proving their comprehension, retention, and practical application of the skill taught.


Track Progress

We take care of trainee commencement, tracking and deadline reminders.

Your easy-to-use management interface allows you to track the progress of group and individual administrators, onboard new team members, pull performance reports, and access completion certificates for compliance audits, all at the click of a button.
