CPTE - Certified Pen Testing Enineer

What is Certified Penetration Testing Engineer?

The C)PTE presents information based on 5 Key Elements of Pen Testing; Information  Gathering, Scanning, Enumeration, Exploitation and Reporting. The latest vulnerabilities will be discovered using these tried and true techniques.

This course also enhances the business skills needed to identify protection opportunities, justify testing activities and optimize security controls to reduce risk associated to working with the internet. The student will be using the latest tools, such as Saint, Metasploit through Kali Linux and Microsoft PowerShell.

This course goes far beyond simply teaching you to "Hack". The C)PTE was developed around principles and behaviors used to combat malicious hackers and focuses on professional penetration testing rather than "ethical hacking".

Besides utilizing ethical hacking methodologies, the student should be prepared to learn penetration testing methodologies using advanced persistent threat techniques. In this course, you will go through a complete penetration test from A-Z! You'll learn to create your own assessment report and apply your knowledge immediately in the work force.

With this in mind, the CPTE certification course is a complete up-grade to the EC-Council CEH!
