Over the past year, the HTB Academy team has been focusing on providing solid and comprehensive upskilling materials for core cybersecurity job positions. The latest release of the new Senior Web Penetration Tester job-role path marks the first specialized course material available on the platform.
The Modules featured on this job-role path are marked as Tier III, designed specifically for individuals with an intermediate knowledge of web application penetration testing who want to move towards advanced black-box and white-box web penetration testing.
Tier III Modules are not included in our Silver annual subscription or Student subscription. These two plans — ideal for cybersecurity beginners or to enter the job market — include all courses and paths up until Tier II (included).
For this reason, we launched a new subscription plan, now available for all Academy members: Gold annual. The purpose is to offer a seamless experience for anyone making their way to the new Senior Web Penetration Tester job-role path (and all other specialized paths coming soon…) without worrying about unlocking Modules one by one or counting cubes.
Here is what the HTB Academy Gold annual subscription includes:
Access to all courses up until Tier III (93 Modules).
Direct access to the new Senior Web Penetration Tester job-role path and any upcoming specialized job-role path in the roadmap.
Unlimited daily playtime with Pwnbox.
(ISC)² CPE credits submission.
One exam voucher, worth $350 if purchased separately and providing two attempts.
1-1 lab exercise guidance via Discord.
Silver annual subscribers can easily upgrade to Gold annual without paying the entire amount of the new plan.
Monthly HTB Academy plans are indeed a good option to gradually start learning cybersecurity with a cost-effective investment. If you are planning a longer-term upskilling experience, though, be aware that you will need to purchase cubes separately to unlock certain Modules.
In addition, with monthly plans, you won’t have access to features like the 1-1 tutoring on Discord, and you will need to purchase the exam voucher separately to access the certification exam. Nevertheless, both monthly and annual subscriptions offer a great path to becoming a better cybersecurity professional!
Of course, specialized HTB Academy course materials are also available for business clients. Tier III Modules are included in the Professional HTB Business plan, together with:
1,000+ Machines, Challenges, and exclusive labs
Real-world simulation labs based on enterprise infrastructure
Two 24-hour Capture The Flag competitions
Exclusive features and team management functionalities for business
