Course Description


EC-Council Certified Penetration Testing Professional Training

Conducted by Ferro Technics, EC-Council’s Certified Penetration Testing Professional (CPENT) training course equips you with the expertise to conduct effective penetration tests within enterprise network environments, encompassing attack, exploitation, evasion, and defense strategies. CPENT’s live practice range will hone your capabilities by instructing you on IoT and OT system penetration testing, exploit development, tool creation, advanced binary exploitation, double pivoting for accessing concealed networks, and customizing scripts/exploits for penetrating inner network segments. Having this experience will not limit you to flat networks. 


Designed with a strategic framework, the CPENT range mirrors an entire enterprise network, providing an authentic environment for practical learning. This is not a simulated game; it accurately replicates enterprise network challenges. Hands-on learning in a live cyber range exposes candidates to multiple layers of network segmentation, with the CPENT course guiding them through navigating these layers. Progression is key, as each target and segment becomes gradually challenging. Once access is achieved in one segment, candidates learn the latest techniques necessary to advance to the next.
