Overview

The EC-Council Centre of Advanced Security Training has arrived at Firebrand Training. This three-day Advanced Penetration Testing course is intensive, and focuses on attacking and defending highly-secured environments. You will learn what it takes to hack into some of the most secure networks and applications in the world.

Warning: This is not a beginner’s course. You'll spend 80% of the course in hands-on hacking labs, so you're expected to know how to hack many platforms and architectures. The course is right for you if you're a: security consultant, penetration tester, firewall administrator, system architect or system administrator.

You will learn how to:

  • Attack modern operating systems, such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Linux servers
  • Identify system vulnerabilities that can be taken advantage-of by a malicious intruder
  • Identify vulnerabilities that exist in an unpatched operating system
  • Breach the security of a network or system
  • Test intrusion detection and response capabilities
  • Analyse and address your system’s weaknesses, through penetration testing
  • Break into a highly-secured organisation from the 'outside'
  • Move around a network without being detected by IDS/IPS
  • Avoid common security features, such as: locked down desktops, GPOs, IDSs/IPSs/WAFs
  • How to 'pentest' high security environments, such as government agencies and financial institutions.

Note: this course doesn't include an exam, but you'll become Advanced Penetration Testing certified.

9x Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Accredited Training Centre of the Year

Firebrand Training has again won the EC-Council Accredited Training Centre of the Year Award, from a Training Partner network that has more than 700 training centres across 107 countries. This extends a record-breaking run of successive awards to nine years.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council said: “The annual EC-Council Awards highlights the commitment and achievements of our global partners and trainers that have contributed to the information security community.”

Seven reasons why you should sit your CAST APT course with Firebrand Training

  1. You’ll be CAST APT certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CAST APT trained in record time
  2. Our CAST APT course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CAST APT first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We're sure you'll pass your CAST APT course first time. But if you don’t, come back within a year, and only pay for accommodation. Everything else is free
  4. You’ll learn more CAST APT. 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 CAST APT 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 CAST APT with the best. We have won the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) "Training Company of the Year" a record three times. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 75867 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study CAST APT courseware. We use labs, case studies and practice tests 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.
