Learn penetration testing with the CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-001) course. This highly hands-on course gives participants experience in network and system penetration testing. It covers all of the exam objectives for the CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 exam. Also included is an extensive step-by-step 47 page Lab Setup Guide that details every aspect of setting up a virtual environment so you can practice all aspects of this training course. We believe this is one of the most comprehensive courses covering penetration testing available anywhere.
This course takes the learner step-by-step through hacking and exploiting each network and system type. Tools used in the activities are mostly Kali Linux-based. A broad range of real-world examples used by penetration testers and red teams are covered. The CompTIA PenTest+ certification is a much-sought-after security certification. It is the final step in achieving the new CompTIA Network Vulnerability Assessment Professional (CNVP) or Network Security Professional (CNSP) stackable certification.
The pentest course is also an intermediary step in achieving the CompTIA Security Infrastructure Expert (CSIE) top level certification. In this course you will learn hands-on penetration testing and hacking skills including:
- Client engagement and documentation
- Passive and active reconnaissance
- Linux and mobile device system hacking
- Physical security testing and social engineering
- Wired and wireless network hacking and exploitation
- Network service hacking and exploitation
- Application and web app hacking and exploitation
- Lateral movement and persistence in a compromised network
- Covering your tracks
- Report writing and post-test cleanup
This pentest course is intended for advanced students and cyber security practitioners who will actively test networks and computer systems for vulnerabilities. Successful completion of two pre-requisite courses, Network+ and Security+, is highly recommended.
Certification exams are administered by third party testing companies. Our courses prepare you for the certification exam, which is an additional fee paid to the testing provider. You must contact testing provider to take a certification exam.
