Course Description

    • Learn penetration testing with the CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) course. This highly hands-on course gives participants experience in network and system penetration testing. It covers all of the exam objectives for the CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-002 exam. Also included is an extensive step-by-step 47 page Lab Setup Guide that details every aspect of setting up a virtual environment so you can practice all aspects of this training course. We believe this is one of the most comprehensive courses covering penetration testing available anywhere.

      This course takes the learner step-by-step through hacking and exploiting each network and system type. Tools used in the activities are mostly Kali Linux-based. A broad range of real-world examples used by penetration testers and red teams are covered. The CompTIA PenTest+ certification is a much-sought-after security certification. It is the final step in achieving the new CompTIA Network Vulnerability Assessment Professional (CNVP) or Network Security Professional (CNSP) stackable certification.ization

  • Knowledge on performing penetration testing and vulnerability scanning.
  • Analysing the results and data and communicate results through effective reporting.
  • Analyse the importance of planning and key aspects of compliance
  • Learn to explore the network, wireless and RF vulnerabilities and physical security attacks and perform post-exploitation techniques.
  • Understand penetration testing through various coding scripts such as Python, Ruby, Bash and PowerShell to gather information from the tool.
  • Understand the pliability of the network to vulnerable attacks and how to mitigate them.
  • Knowledge on overall state of improving the IT security across an organisation.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Penetration testing is a security tool which is used by cyber-security professionals to detect and exploit the vulnerabilities in a computer system.

The process of Penetration Testing includes, planning and preparation, reconnaissance, discovery, analysing information and risks, active intrusion attempts, final analysis, and report preparation.

It is complex and tougher than CompTIA Security+. Candidates who completed Security+ and CompTIA CySA+ would find it easy learning to pentest+.
Candidates achieving CompTIA Security+ certification or possessing 3-4 years’ equivalent experience in IT security are the prerequisites of qualifying pentest plus.
Its an online-proctor & centre base exam (Pearson Vue) and the exam cost is $381 USD.

You can renew your certificate by taking the re-certification exam or earning 60 CEUs by performing various qualifying activities.
