Thanks for the tips guys. I've seen the offensive-security.com website and I
was interested in that because it had the 'real' hands on labs and then a
certification that was very similar. It seemed to be the best for 'real
world experience' so I was actually going to take that course.

I'll setup a test lab here and starting working away, but I appreciate the
opinions and direction.

Thanks.
