I believe that malware analysis shouldn't have a big learning curve.
With other training, the learning resources can be scattered, not step-by-step, hard to learn, and target mainly developers. Malware analysis doesn't require programming experience, however the other online resources require it.
When I started, I was a mechanical engineering student. It took me 3 years to get a grip of that field and write my well-known Stuxnet Analysis report.
As I went through the journey, it made me realize that learning malware analysis shouldn't be as hard as these resources are making it. It can take around 6 months part-time study to get a good understanding of this science and be an interview-ready candidate.
