Overview

CompTIA Pentest+ certification

On this accelerated 3 day CompTIA PenTest+, you'll get the skills you need to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network - 30% faster than traditional training.

This course builds upon skills learnt from CompTIA Security+ certification and provides you with the intermediate skills and best practice for penetration testing.

Your expert instructor will teach you up-to-date penetration testing skills, helping you develop vulnerability assessment techniques and the management skills necessary to determine how resilient a network is to attacks.

You'll learn to:

  • customise assessment frameworks
  • report penetration test findings
  • communicate recommended strategies

You'll be immersed in the curriculum with our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which combines theory and practical skills to help you retain information faster. With 24/7 lab access, you'll have the opportunity to test your penetration and vulnerability assessment skills whenever you like.

On this course, you'll prepare for and take the CompTIA PenTest+ exam, which is covered by your Certification Guarantee. The performance-based PenTest+ exam involves hands-on simulations, proving you've moved beyond theory and have the practical skills to carry out penetration testing techniques.

Achieving this certification qualifies you for a role as a:

  • Penetration Tester
  • Vulnerability Tester
  • Security Analyst (II)
  • Vulnerability Assessment Analyst
  • Network Security Operations
  • Application Security Vulnerability

If you're an intermediate level cyber security professional tasked with penetration testing, this course is ideal for you.

Seven reasons why you should sit your PenTest+ course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be PenTest+ certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be PenTest+ trained in record time
  2. Our PenTest+ course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass PenTest+ first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more PenTest+. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn PenTest+ faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying PenTest+ with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 125,505 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study PenTest+ courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
