Certified Penetration Testing Professional

The Ultimate Penetration Testing Course

EC-Council’s Certified Penetration Tester (CPENT) program teaches you how to perform an effective penetration test in an enterprise network environment that must be attacked, exploited, evaded, and defended. If you have only been working in flat networks, CPENT’s live practice range will teach you to take your skills to the next level by teaching you how to pen test IoT systems, OT systems, how to write your own exploits, build your own tools, conduct advanced binaries exploitation, double pivot to access hidden networks, and also customize scripts/exploits to get into the innermost segments of the network. The Certified Penetration Testing Professional or CPENT, for short, re-writes the standards of penetration testing skill development.

Join our CPENT Training Course to go beyond the concepts taught in CEH and learn the proven pen test methodologies used by the pros.
