About this video

The CompTIA Pentest+ certification is an intermediate-level vendor-neutral certification that validates your knowledge and ability to plan/scope an assessment and analyze/report on your findings. This certification was released by CompTIA to fill a gap between the foundational-level CompTIA Security+ exam (for those with about 1 year in the field) and the advanced-level CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (for those with at least 5 years in the field).

This course is focused on the technical, hands-on details of the cybersecurity field, including how to emulate a cyber threat, infiltrate a secure network architecture, and conduct a penetration test against your organizational networks (with permission, of course). This course provides everything you need in order to study for the CompTIA Pentest+ exam. Each section is dedicated to each of the 5 domains, and each domain contains brief videos on topics that will further your understanding of ethical hacking and get you one step closer to ace the exam.

By the end of the course, you will have the confidence to tackle the CompTIA Pentest+ exam and become a certified ethical hacker. You will also create your own pentest lab.
