What is the CompTIA PenTest+ Certification Training course?

It is the job of a penetration tester (pen tester) to demonstrate and record flaws in security. Typically, a pen tester will undertake reconnaissance, to find any vulnerabilities and exploit them in order to gain access and extract some data of value, proving the system is not 100% secure.

This CompTIA® PenTest+ course prepares you to be able to take and pass the new CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 certification exam.

Is the CompTIA PenTest+ Certification Training right for me?

This course has been designed for IT professionals looking to develop penetration testing skills, enabling them to identify vulnerabilities and effective remediation techniques.


To ensure you have success on this course, you should have:

  •        Intermediate knowledge of information security concepts (identity and access management (IAM), cryptographic concepts and implementations, computer networking concepts and implementations, and common security technologies)
  •        Practical experience within securing various computing environments

You can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking the CompTIA Security+ Certification Training.

You should have 3-4 years of hands-on experience performing penetration tests, vulnerability assessments, and vulnerability management.

e-Careers has partnered with The Learning Tree, to offer a range of courses, delivered via high-tech classrooms or virtual learning, depending on your requirement.
