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.

We are an award-winning, established eLearning course provider, with over 16 years’ experience in the industry.  We offer high-quality training courses at competitive prices.

What will I learn on this course?

Throughout the course you’ll be introduced to the general methodologies and concepts, which relate to penetration testing, and you’ll reinforce these concepts through simulated penetration tests for a fictitious company.

Among other topics, you’ll learn how to plan and scope penetration tests, conduct passive reconnaissance and exploit hoist-based vulnerabilities.

LiveOnline Learning

Currently, 25% of all classes are delivered through LiveOnline, so if you can’t make it to our London, Euston location for any reason, this option is the ideal solution for you. You’ll also be happy to note that the pass marks are the same for both classroom and LiveOnline delegates.

To ensure you have enough time to familiarise yourself with the text you'll be studying, we send out any manuals and course reading materials to you around 3-5 weeks before your course commences. You’ll also gain access to the trainer for one hour (available after course, via phone or skype).

Each of our classers are equipped with high technology to be able to successfully deliver courses through LiveOnline, including:

  •    Wide screen cameras – Delivering clear visibility of both the class and the trainer
  •    Projector and whiteboard – Materials are projected onto a full white wall
  •    Latest annotation hardware and software – Providing greater visibility for your LiveOnline screen
  •    Electronic Mat – Each trainer has access to an electronic mat, which when stood on and off switches camera angles between their face and the whiteboard, helping to provide a better visible learning experience
  •    Microphones - All trainers have a microphone so the whole class (and especially the LiveOnline learners) can better hear the trainers loud and clear. LiveOnline delegates will require a microphone headset. Classroom attendees will have access to a microphone (one per desk of two delegates) and speaker system. When questions arise, everyone can both speak and hear clearly

Softskills courses which require breakout sessions in small groups, also involve the LiveOnline delegate, through a shared screen and camera, with full visibility and microphone access. This ensures each delegate (both in the classroom and external locations via LiveOnline) has the opportunity to be involved in the interactive lessons.  

If LiveOnline delegates experience any technical difficulties or questions, there is a fully managed control centre, who will assist each delegate. Response times sit at 45 seconds and each session is constantly monitored by a technical team.

Prices include all training, manuals, pre-course reading material, exams and 1 hour one-one access to the trainer).
