Course Description

This highly hands-on course gives participants experience in network and system penetration testing. It covers all of the exam objectives for the PT0-001 exam, while taking the learner step-by-step through hacking and exploiting each network and system type. Tools used in the activities are mostly Kali  Linuxbased, covering a broad range of real-world examples used by penetration testers and red teams.

The PenTest+ certification is a much-sought-after security certification offered by CompTIA. It is the final step in achieving the new CompTIA Network Vulnerability Assessment Professional (CNVP) or Network Security Professional (CNSP) stackable certification. It is also an intermediary step in achieving the CompTIA Security Infrastructure Expert (CSIE) top level certification.
