CompTIA PenTest+

Course Overview

The CompTIA PenTest+ certification is a highly sought-after, hands-on course that teaches networking and security professionals to perform penetration tests in their own organisations.

Penetration testing is performed by purposefully conducting a cyber-attack on an organisation's computer systems in order to gauge the effectiveness of that company's IT security measures.

During this CompTIA PenTest+ course, you will be taught to hack and exploit various types of networks and computer systems. Most of the tools in this course are Kali Linux-based, using a range of examples that are used by seasoned Penetration Testers when testing systems.

CompTIA PenTest+ is the most current penetration testing exam, which covers the latest techniques against expanded attack surfaces. PenTest+ is also the only exam on the market to include all aspects of vulnerability management.

The CompTIA PenTest+ certification is accredited by CompTIA (The Computing Technology Industry Association), which is considered one of the IT industry's top trade associations.
