If you're looking to start a career in IT and security, and in the process earn top dollar defending companies against malicious hackers, malware, and Boris from GoldenEye, then congrats, you're one smart cookie. Also congrats, because these bundles will teach you everything you need to know to get started.
If you're trying to get a job in IT, you pretty much have to get a CompTIA certification. Think of it like a certificate that assures your potential employers that you actually know what the blazes you're talking about, and didn't just watch Hackers 11 times right before your interview. The CompTIA Cyber Security Expert Bundle will teach you all the skills you'll need to crush the certification exam on your first try and become an accredited professional in virtually every area of network maintenance and security. This bundle gives you lifetime access to three courses and over 60 hours of instruction covering several CompTIA certification exams, including Security+ and Pentest+, for the recently hacked price of $59. That's $297 of mainframe-busting training you can grab right now at a massive 80 percent discount.
If you've seen the recent cautionary tale / Criterion-worthy art film Unfriended: Dark Web, you know that hackers are a powerful force to be reckoned with. However, if you've also seen the historical docudramas Hackers and Blackhat, you know that white-hat hackers are an instrument of justice and extreme personal wealth. Every major company out there, from Facebook to Google to Amazon, pays blushing salaries to skilled hackers who can identify security threats. With the help of the Complete White Hat Hacker Certification Bundle, you too can become a hero -- and by hero, we mean certified in the necessary skills required to secure websites.
In the bundle, you'll receive access to eight courses and over 45 hours of instruction on how to identify security risks in WiFi networks, web apps, and websites. You'll learn to become fluent in Metasploit, Kali Linux, rootkits, and stealth apps, plus you'll uncover a mountain of hacking techniques allowing you to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in any kind of network, so that you may then demand payment to correct said vulnerabilities. Normally this bundle sells for $894.92, but right now you can hack 96 percent off that price and get the whole shebang for just $29.
The Ultimate Cisco Certification Super Bundle contains nine super-stuffed courses designed to make you a certified expert in Cisco Networking Systems. That way, you can seamlessly integrate with any network design and security, like some kind of RoboCop and/or Terminator. The courses cover every aspect of Cisco networking, including basic LAN implementation, IP routing, IP switched networks, wireless networking, and troubleshooting and maintaining Cisco networks. (It's like you're IP Man, without all the tiresome martial arts.) The Ultimate Cisco Certification Super Bundle has everything you need to become a certified Cisco specialist, and if this were any other day, it would cost you $3,285. But right now, you can get lifetime access to the whole bundle at a life-altering 98 percent off for just $49.
The days of eating ramen out of an old mug and watching stuff on a "borrowed" Netflix account are finally over, because a lucrative new career as a DevOps engineer is right at your fingertips with the Ultimate DevOps Mastery Bundle. In the bundle, you'll get nine courses and 70 hours of instruction in the various systems you'll need to know as a DevOps specialist, including AWS, Linux, Docker, and Unix. You'll also earn certification in several important areas to make your resume light up like a Vegas storefront to prospective employers, including AWS and CISSP. Normally, lifetime access to the Ultimate DevOps Mastery Bundle would set you back $652, but Cracked readers can take 93 percent off and get it for just $43.
Almost any major service you can think of is making the move to cloud computing, because, much as you discovered when you started downloading every Assassin's Creed directly from the PlayStation Store, physical media and storage have become obsolete. If you're looking to jump into the IT field, gaining expertise in cloud computing is an excellent niche to carve for yourself.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) are used by hundreds of thousands of businesses around the world, and with this bundle, you'll get access to eight courses and over 50 hours of training, teaching you how to create, integrate, and maintain AWS cloud-based networks and how to keep them secure. Plus, the training will prepare you to ace AWS certification exams, so your boss knows that you know more about cloud computing than what's available on the Wikipedia article. This bundle typically sells for $1,299, but Cracked readers can jump on a 94 percent discount and get one year of unlimited access to all eight modules for just $69.
