This CompTIA® PenTest+ course will prepare you to pass the new CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-002 certification exam. It will also introduce you to the general concepts and methodologies related to penetration testing. Reinforce these concepts as you work your way through a simulated pen test for a fictitious company.
Passing the PenTest+ Certification Exam meets U.S. DoD Directive 8140/8570.01 CSSP Analyst, CSSP Incident Responder, CSSP Auditor, and CSSP Infrastructure Support.
