The RangeForce Workforce Ready Professional Certificate Program
What hiring managers need to know
RangeForce's Workforce Ready (WFR) Professional Certificate Program revolutionizes how cybersecurity professionals can certify job-ready capabilities. Our certified professionals are unique. Each certificate represents a clear skillset, developed through 30+ hours of hands-on training in our cyber range. In a final capstone challenge, certified learners must demonstrate operational expertise and resiliency during multi-stage defensive or offensive exercises.
Real hands-on training so your new hire will be ready to add value on day ONE
Our first core certificates are Security Analyst Level 1 and AppSec OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities. With multiple hands-on experiential training modules and a virtual teaching assistant, our certification technology is built into the RangeForce platform's cloud-based cyber range. This enables RangeForce to independently validate learners who demonstrate applied cybersecurity skills through numerous challenges in live environments.
RangeForce BattleSkills training is proven to develop critical blue and red team skill mastery. We train thousands of learners across hundreds of enterprise organizations.
Save Time and Money
Trained and certified learners will need significantly less on-the-job training compared to uncertified peers. Cut time and cost with WFR certified hires.
Upskill Your Team
Build stronger internal development programs by identifying talent within your team and standardizing employee advancement paths.
RangeForce WFR provides hiring managers with a more tangible view of workforce readiness compared to certifications received through conventional written exams. Our learners have shown their success in a cyber range featuring real IT infrastructure, users, and applications. Most importantly, they have a functional understanding of the vendor and open-source tools that are used to detect, respond, and contain real cyberattacks. From day one, our learners are ready join your team and produce results.
The RangeForce CyberSkills platform raises the standard for evaluating the most important element of cyber readiness – the human skills that drive security operations. We equip security leaders to develop top talent through a performance-based approach and the visibility needed to track a team's strengths and weaknesses.
Certificates are awarded for completing role-based learning paths. Initial certificates: Security Analyst One, AppSec OWASP TOP 10 Vulnerabilities Defense. These will be followed by certificates for Security Analyst Level Two, Threat Hunter, and Penetration Tester. New certificates will be added quarterly.
Each certificate requires a holder to complete a rigorous hands-on learning path that includes 30 hours of hands-on “live environment” training, two challenge exams, and a final intensive capstone challenge. Certificate holders must complete all training and pass all challenges and the capstone.
RangeForce Learning Paths align with NIST/NICE role standards and are in the process of receiving ANSI accreditation. Our learning paths and certificates also fall within our CREST certified partnership. Certificates are issued and managed digitally by Credly allowing owners to easily share and promote their learned skills.
With RangeForce, you get a realistic, hands-on experience that effectively tests your team's ability to identify and respond to the latest attacks
