1. ****MOST IMPORTANT*** - Be comfortable in a bash command line. This includes traversing directories(cd), listing files(ls), using your favorite text editor(vi, vim, nano, emacs).
If you need some practice, a partner of ours, White Hat Academy, has some good interactive bash lessons online for free!
2. Basic networking knowledge - know what ping does and how the internet works from a high level.
3. A desire to learn the basics of penetration testing skills that will help you participate in upcoming CTF's.
