Are there non-Berkeley skills tools available to me?

There are many options available for technical training. Here are a few suggestions.

  • TryHackMe has excellent labs to build skills.
  • Jetbrains offers free access to its coding and other teaching modules to those who have a university email account.
  • The Federal Virtual Training Environment (FedVTE) provides free online cybersecurity training to U.S. government employees, Federal contractors, and veterans. There are free courses available to the public here as well.
  • Many boutique services now focus on penetration testing, such as Hack the Box and Cryptopals Crypto Challenges. There is also a vibrant “capture the flag” community tracked here.
  • Services such as Immersive Labs offer simulations to show off your skills, and often give access to a demo test.
