RCSA Curriculum

(Reflare Certified Secure Administrator)

IT Security Training for Administrators

Secure server management with live challenges in the cloud.

After every practical video lesson, trainees must complete the demonstrated attack or defence technique in a live VM environment to advance.

No final exams, tedious cramming or multiple-choice questions. Just effective study and real-world experience in writing more secure code.

Advantages & Benefits

    Runs in the cloud

    All of the lessons and challenges run entirely on Amazon's AWS infrastructure. This means we can scale to any number of users and you don't need to install any software.

  • Flag Icon

    Real world skills

    We know that you can only maintain secure servers if you understand how weaknesses are abused. RCSA teaches trainees both the practical attack and defence skills needed to improve the quality of their work.

  • Money Icon

    Per user licensing

    You pay per trainee per training. No hidden fees or yearly costs for content updates. You decide if and when you want to retrain one of your developers.

  • World Icon

    Anyplace, Anytime

    Allow your users to train at a time that suits them. On site, on the road or at home, all that is required is an internet connection in a modern HTML5 browser.

    Track Progress
