You’ll start off with setting up your environment (emulator/sdk/hardware/etc), once done the course quickly moves into using your device as an attack platform. From there the course goes into the basics of forensics, reverse engineering mobile applications, exploiting mobile applications on each respective platform, and finally on to attacking web services from each platform.
