In this 5 Day training provides the knowledge needed to plan and perform penetration tests and other security engagements, using a vendor-neutral format. This includes planning engagements, performing reconnaissance to find vulnerabilities in a target organization, exploiting vulnerable targets, and creating followup reports. This course maps to the CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam (PT0-001). Objective coverage is marked throughout the course.

You will benefit most from this course if you intend to become a certified penetration tester, or if you are a security professional who wishes to understand cybersecurity from an offensive perspective.

This course assumes that you have some applied knowledge of computers, networks, and cybersecurity principles. Knowledge equivalent to the CompTIA Security+ certification is helpful but not necessary.


What You'll Learn

The CompTIA PenTest+ Certification Study Guide will prepare you to take the CompTIA PenTest+ exam by providing 100% coverage of the objectives and content examples listed on the syllabus, including how to:

Plan and scope penetration tests
Conduct passive reconnaissance
Perform non-technical tests to gather information
Conduct active reconnaissance
Analyze vulnerabilities
Penetrate networks
Exploit host-based vulnerabilities
Test applications
Complete post-exploit tasks
Analyze and report penetration test results
While there is no required prerequisite, PenTest+ is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, hands-on focus. Recommended experience in Network+, Security+ or equivalent knowledge. Minimum of 3-4 years of hands-on information security or related experience.


*Course Cost listed does not include the cost of courseware. Course is subject to a minimum enrollment. Course may run virtually as a Virtual Instructor-Led (VILT) class if the minimum enrollment is not met. For more information, please contact: or call 207-775-0244.
