CompTIA PenTest+ Certification Training


This CompTIA® PenTest+ course will prepare you to pass the new CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 certification exam. It will also introduce you to the general concepts and methodologies related to penetration testing. Reinforce these concepts as you work your way through a simulated pen test for a fictitious company.

PenTest+ training includes management skills used to plan, scope, and manage weaknesses, not just exploit them. CompTIA PenTest+ testing assesses the most up-to-date penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment and management skills necessary to determine the resiliency of the network against attacks. Successful exam candidates will have the intermediate skills required to customize assessment frameworks to effectively collaborate on and report findings. The exam candidates will also have the best practices to communicate recommended strategies to improve the overall state of IT security.
