code: CT-PENTEST | version: PT0-002

PenTest+ assesses the most up-to-date penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment and management skills necessary to determine the resiliency of the network against attacks.

The CompTIA PenTest+ certification exam will verify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to:

  • Plan and scope a penetration testing engagement
  • Understand legal and compliance requirements
  • Perform vulnerability scanning and penetration testing using appropriate tools and techniques, and then analyze the results
  • Produce a written report containing proposed remediation techniques, effectively communicate results to the management team, and provide practical recommendations

PenTest+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements. Regulators and government rely on ANSI accreditation, because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program.

The CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) exam is accredited by ANSI to show compliance with the ISO 17024 standard and, as such, undergoes regular reviews and updates to the exam objectives.

Each participant in an authorized training CompTIA PenTest+ Prep Course held in Compendium CE will receive a free PT0-002 CompTIA PenTest+ Certification Exam vouchers.
