PenTest+ is an intermediate-level certification for cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with penetration testing to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network. The combination of penetration testing and vulnerability management in PenTest+ means IT pros not only find and exploit vulnerabilities, but manage them to protect their organization's network.

PenTest+ is at the same certification level as CompTIA CySA+ . PenTest+ focuses on offense through penetration testing and vulnerability assessment whereas CySA+ focuses on defense through incident detection and response. The most qualified cybersecurity professionals have both offensive and defensive skills. With live, instructor-led PenTest+ classes at ONLC you'll be ready to earn PenTest+ certification to prove your skills and grow your cybersecurity career.
