Course Description

The CompTIA PenTest+ exam focuses on offense through penetration testing and vulnerability assessment. It is the only penetration testing exam with both performance-based simulations and multiple-choice questions to ensure you have the skills, knowledge and ability to perform tasks on systems. CompTIA PenTest+ also includes the management skills used to plan, scope and manage weaknesses, not just exploit them.

CompTIA PenTest+ requires you to demonstrate your ability to test devices in new environments such as the cloud and mobile, in addition to traditional desktops and servers.
