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.
