This accelerated ECSA course fully prepares you for both the penetration test skills competency test, the ECSA v10 exam and the ECSA Practical. The course also includes some of the self-study modules in order to give you training on as many topics as possible and give you more valuable penetration testing skills.

  • Hands-on labs
