  • Penetration/Vulnerability Testers
  • Security Analysts
  • Vulnerability Assessment Analysts
  • Network Security Operations
  • Security Consultants
  • Cloud Penetration Testers
  • Web App Penetration Testers
  • Cloud Security Specialists
  • Network & Security Specialists


What will you learn by taking this course?

  • How to plan and scope out penetration testing engagements in relation to governance, risk, and compliance concepts. Candidates also learn how to carry out engagements while demonstrating an ethical hacking mindset or scoping organizational and customer requirements
  • How legal and compliance requirements apply to penetration testing
  • How to use appropriate tools and techniques to perform vulnerability scanning, management, and reconnaissance, as well as penetration testing. The module also outlines how to analyze the results
  • How to create written reports outlining proposed remediation techniques, communicate results to managers, and offer practical recommendations to stakeholders
  • How to expand attack surfaces, research social engineering techniques, perform wireless, network, and application-based attacks (along with attacks on cloud technologies), and perform post-exploitation techniques
  • Updated code analysis tools for identifying scripts in different software deployments, explaining use cases for different tools at various phases of a penetration test, analyzing script/code samples, and more

Why should you take this course?

  • CompTIA PenTest+ uses both multiple-choice and hands-on, performance-based questions. Because of this, passing the exam will immediately validate a candidate’s skills, knowledge, and capabilities
  • The exam also covers managerial skills for planning, scoping out, managing, and exploiting weaknesses
  • CompTIA PenTest+ practitioners are highly valued for their ability to test devices in new environments, such as mobile and cloud, as well as traditional servers and desktops
  • The CompTIA PenTest+ covers the most recent skills in vulnerability assessment and penetration testing required to determine the resiliency of a framework
  • CompTIA PenTest+ practitioners are capable of customizing assessment frameworks to collaborate on reporting findings and communicate recommended strategies to enhance IT security
  • Several leading organizations contributed to PenTest+, including Global Cyber Security, North State Technology Solutions, TransUnion, Integra LifeSciences, Johns Hopkins University, and ASICS Corporation
  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that jobs roles requiring skills and knowledge in penetration testing will see 31% overall growth by 2029
  • The overall penetration testing market is estimated to increase by 21.8% from 2020 to 2025
  • CompTIA has set a global standard for computing networking, support, cloud, mobility, security, and open-source development for over 20 years. Its certification syllabuses are also updated regularly to meet new requirements and challenges
  • This CompTIA PenTest+ course comes with a variety of CompTIA online training assets, including instructor guides, videos, lab work, study guides, tools, and assessments


Recommended experience: Security+, Network+, or equivalent training/knowledge. A minimum of three to four years of hands-on experience in information security or related fields. While there are no strict prerequisites, PenTest+ should ideally follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent technical and hands-on experience.
