In order to perform penetration testing, a cyber attack will be willfully undertaken by an organisation's Penetration Tester. This is in order to measure the effectiveness of an organisation's IT security systems. During this course, you will be taught to use the tools and techniques used by Penetration Testers when performing these tests.

The CompTIA PenTest+ certification is the last step towards the CompTIA Network Vulnerability Assessment Professional (CNVP) or Network Security Professional (CNSP) certifications. It also provides you with credit towards the CompTIA Security Infrastructure Expert (CSIE) certification.

Why study online?

Many students prefer online study to conventional classroom-based learning as it provides them with the freedom to learn at their own pace, and in an environment in which they are comfortable.

Online study material can also be viewed and revised as many times as the student needs, which contributes to long-term memory retention. These factors, in addition to the fact that online training courses are often more cost-effective than the on-site alternative, make online study an appealing option to students today.

Who is this course for?

Anyone with an interest in performing penetration testing on their organisation's IT security systems.


There are no prerequisites, however, it is recommended that you gain your CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ certifications before studying this course.
