Licensed Penetration Tester


The 5-day course will teach you how to perform a professional security test as well as how to produce the next most important thing… the findings and the report! It will also prepare you for the challenging 18 hour Licensed Pen testing Certification exam. 


The Advanced Penetration Tester (APT) course will teach you how to perform a professional security test as well as how to produce the next most important thing… the findings and the report!

The ranges progress in difficulty and reflect an enterprise level architecture. There will be defenses to defeat and challenges to overcome. This is not your typical FLAT network! As the range levels increase you will encounter the top defenses of today and learn the latest evasion techniques.

The format you will use has been used to train 1000s of penetration testers globally, it is proven and effective!

* The APT course is a follow-on to the ECSA

* You should have completed the ESCA Practical.

* Prepares you for the LPT Master Certification.  

This program is radically different from the ECSA. In the ECSA course, you are provided guidance on what machines to attack and an initial starting point.

In the Advanced Penetration Testing Course, you are presented with minimal network information along with a Scope of Work (SOW).

The course was created to provide you with advanced concepts that will help when it comes to attempting the LPT (Master) Certification exam.

In this course you will learn professional security and penetration testing skills. The course is designed to show advanced concepts like scanning against defenses, pivoting between networks, deploying proxy chains, and using web shells. The last module of the course includes an SOW for each of the various networks we have created for the course. This, combined with the composition of various ranges, mimics a professional penetration test.

Time is limited and you will be required to identify the attack surface followed by the weaknesses of the machines that are on the network.


This new program is built for ECSA credentialed members who require advanced pentesting skills and a professional level certification to attest their skills to employers.
