The Certified Penetration Testing Engineer course trains students on the 5 key elements of penetration testing: information gathering, scanning, enumeration, exploitation and reporting. Ethical hacking is the art of using these penetration testing techniques to identify and repair the latest vulnerabilities in a system to make sure it is secure. Malicious hackers use these same techniques to find the same vulnerabilities except they exploit the vulnerabilities giving them access to the businesses network. Once inside, hackers can access private information, such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, and social security numbers of clients and employees. It’s very likely this data will be held for ransom or sold off on a black market. Hackers are constantly looking for new companies they can exploit; when they come across yours, will they be able to gain access? Certified Penetration Testing Engineers are the solution to prevent this from happening to businesses they serve.

With our proprietary penetration testing lab exercises, students will spend about 20 hours getting real-world penetration testing experience. They'll know what they are learning and they'll know how to use it after course. Our instructors will also provide real life examples of when to use the techniques that are being taught. There is no better way to learn the art of penetration testing.

This course also enhances the business skills needed to identify protection opportunities, justify testing activities and optimize security controls appropriate to the business needs in order to reduce business risk.


The National Security Agency has validated the CISSO for the following security standards:

NSTISSI - 4011: National Training Standard for Information Systems Security (INFOSEC)
CNSSI - 4012: National Information Assurance Training Standard for Senior Systems Managers


The CPTE is a course on penetration testing designed for those who already have a basic understanding of cyber security. We recommend an understanding of how computers are networked and how they interact with the internet (TCP/IP). Some of the tools we will use are only developed for Linux; therefor having experience with Linux is a plus. We recommend having the previously mentioned experience or you can prepare to take the course by completing the CISSO: Certified Information Systems Officer course as a prerequisite. People who are in or are going into the following professional roles will especially benefit from our course:

Penetration Testing Consultant        Security Analyst/Consultant              Security Architect

Chief Information Security Officer   Security Auditor                                   IT Management
