Keep certified with HTB

I have an ISC² certification that needs to be renewed every 3 years with (most important I think) money/year and CPEs (Continuing Professional Education). While I usually have no problem getting enough points together, I wonder if HTB could be also a source for those points. I couldn't find anything here, but since I spend countless hours rooting a box there should be some way to transfer them into CPEs (or CUEs or whatever system your provider uses).

Anyone here is in the same boat/has some suggestion? Or are only OSCPs here? ;)

  • I hold two ISC² certifications, and hadn't considered trying to get CPEs for my work on HTB. That's actually a good idea. Based on the CPE handbook, I would classify it as "Performing a unique work-related project that is not a part of your normal work duties." or "Self-study related to research for a project or preparing for a certification examination."

    Since my reason for joining HTB was for OSCP preparation, which I just passed 2 days ago, I get 40 CPEs to apply towards my certs.

  • Wow - congratz. Actually OSCP is my target too - plus having some fun (well, mostly frustration tbh) here :)
    I thought of it as self-study. The issue is, how many points is a box? I feel like I need around 8+ hours of work - spread over multiple days - to do a box (yeah, pretty noob). Would this be considered as fine? Actually there is no real proof how long it took.
  • Does anyone know, where I can get a ISC Member ID? I already have the OSCP but cant find anything in order to get this ID...

  • Well, you need to pass an ISC² certification. Most prominent is CISSP.
  • Does anyone know if it's possible to get CEU credit for boxes/challenges that I owned prior to the ISC2 CEU feature being added? I still have 2 years to get 108 CEUs for my CISSP - but it would be pretty darn nice if I could get credit for everything else I've done on HTB. Even if it's only back to 1/1/19.

  • Does anyone know if now HTB submits the CPE automatically to ISC2 or do we have to submit them manually?

  • Good question - as you have to provide your certification ID I expected it t be automatic. However I couldn't find the points for recent activities in my CPE overview (ok, don't need any for the next 2 years with the new CPE program).

    It can be done automatically if you sign up for the VIP.
