CompTIA Penetration Testing (PENTEST+)

 

Course Overview

In this course, you'll get the skills you need to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network.

This course builds upon skills learnt from CompTIA Security+ certification and provides you with the intermediate skills and best practice for penetration testing.

Your expert instructor will teach you up-to-date penetration testing skills, helping you develop vulnerability assessment techniques and the management skills necessary to determine how resilient a network is to attacks.
