CompTIA PenTest+ is the only penetration testing exam taken at a Pearson VUE testing center with both hands-on, performance-based questions and multiple-choice, to ensure each candidate possesses the skills, knowledge, and ability to perform tasks on systems. PenTest+ exam also includes management skills used to plan, scope, and manage weaknesses, not just exploit them.

PenTest+ is unique because our certification requires a candidate to demonstrate the hands-on ability and knowledge to test devices in new environments such as the cloud and mobile, in addition to traditional desktops and servers. 


Before attending this course, delegates must have intermediate knowledge of information security concepts, including but not limited to:

• Identity and access management (IAM)

• Cryptographic concepts and implementations

• Computer networking concepts and implementations

• Common security technologies

• Practical experience in securing various computing environments, including small to medium businesses, as well as enterprise environments Delegates can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking the CompTIA Security+ (IN-SE) course and obtaining the appropriate certification by completing and passing the CompTIA SY0-501 exam.


This course is designed for IT professionals who want to develop penetration testing skills to enable them to identify information-system vulnerabilities and effective remediation techniques for those vulnerabilities.

Target students who also need to offer practical recommendations for action to properly protect information systems and their contents will derive those skills from this course.
