The CompTIA PenTest+ training course prepares IT professionals to pass the PenTest+ PT0-002 certification exam and develop the skills necessary for effective penetration testing. The course covers planning, information gathering, attacks and exploits, reporting tools and code analysis. Participants should have intermediate knowledge of information security concepts and practical experience securing various computing environments.
Successful completion of this course and passing the exam will result in the CompTIA PenTest+ certification.
