  • Course Overview
  • In this 5 Day training provides the knowledge needed to plan and perform penetration tests and other security engagements, using a vendor-neutral format. This includes planning engagements, performing reconnaissance to find vulnerabilities in a target organization, exploiting vulnerable targets, and creating followup reports. This course maps to the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam (PT0-001). Objective coverage is marked throughout the course.

    You will benefit most from this course if you intend to become a certified penetration tester, or if you are a security professional who wishes to understand cybersecurity from an offensive perspective.

    This course assumes that you have some applied knowledge of computers, networks, and cybersecurity principles. Knowledge equivalent to the CompTIA Security+ certification is helpful but not necessary.
