Introduction to Certified Penetration Testing (C|PENT)

The Certified Penetration Testing Professional or C|PENT Certification, for short, re-writes the standards of penetration testing skill development.

EC-Council’s Certified Penetration Testing Professional (C|PENT) program teaches you how to perform an effective penetration testing in an enterprise network environment that must be attacked, exploited, evaded, and defended. If you have only been working in flat networks, C|PENT’s live practice range will teach you to take your skills to the next level by teaching you how to pen test IoT systems, OT systems, how to write your own exploits, build your own tools, conduct advanced binaries exploitation, double pivot to access hidden networks, and also customize scripts/exploits to get into the innermost segments of the network.

The heart of the C|PENT course is all about helping you master your pen testing skills by putting them to use on our live cyber ranges. The certified penetration testing ranges were designed to be dynamic in order to give you a real-world training program, so just as targets and technology continue to change in live networks, both the (C|PENT) practice and exam ranges will mimic this reality as our team of engineers continue to add targets and defenses throughout the C|PENT course’s lifetime.
