Featured Review

I really enjoyed that I was never too frustrated by the exam, but it really pushed me every single day, every single machine, every single thing kind of pushed me to learn something new. To really dig into what I had learned, what I already knew, but also then to learn new things. So for me, it was much more learning experience than it was an exam.

Video Reviews

Harley from Infinite Logins took the PNPT certification exam in July of 2021 and passed on their first attempt. This video is an overview of the exam so you can learn what to expect going into it, and hopefully better prepare yourself for success.

The course content is great and gives you many of the tools and techniques needed to perform an assessment discovering common vulnerabilities within an Active Directory environment.
The challenging exam, paired with the report and technical debrief presentation, will give you an excellent foundation for nailing an interview for a pentesting position.

Matt Schmidt – TCM PNPT (CPEH) EXAM / CERTIFICATION REVIEW

GET CERTIFIED IN THREE EASY STEPS

Our Process

Step 1: Purchase the exam and register for a time convenient for you.

Our flexible registration process allows for students to register on a 24 hour calendar, so that they can take the exam at a time best aligned with their schedule.

Step 2: Take the certification exam.

Once your exam begins, students will have five full days of access to their own unique exam environment.  Once finished, students will have an additional two days to deliver a professional report.  Finally, students will debrief our team of pentesters with their report findings.

Step 3: Receive your badge and certification.

You worked hard for it and should be able to show off that hard work.  All exams come with a certificate of completion and badge.  These items can be shared by students, and verified by employers, through Accredible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No, exam vouchers do not expire.

No, once acquired, the certification is lifetime.

No, you will have access to your training for life.

Yes! You can view an example of those here.

Yes.  The exam is a pentest and all tools are allowed. Including Linpeas.

The exam environment permits five full days to simulate a real pentest, though you can complete the engagement objectives ahead of time.

You will have an additional two days to write a professional report and submit it to our team.

In short, it really doesn’t.  The exam was designed because the industry is lacking in practical certifications.  Some certifications are multiple choice and do not test a student’s technical skills.  Other exams are hands on, but are not realistic in time allotment or attack methodology.  This exam replicates a true pentest in both attack methodology and the amount of time permitted to perform the test.

Everyone is different, however, we believe that:

If you are a beginner, the exam will be very difficult and we strongly recommend that you purchase the associated training.

If you are a junior penetration tester, the exam will be difficult and may require additional training.

If you are a mid to senior level pentester, the exam will be of moderate difficulty.

Yes.  It was designed for student’s to pass the exam with the training.  The training is designed for students from absolute beginner to moderate levels and will teach you the skills necessary to be successful as a penetration tester.

Yes! We are veteran-owned and want to thank you for your service.

We offer a 20% discount to current and former military as well as first responders (Police, EMTs, Firefighters, Nurses, Doctors, etc.), regardless of country.  We also extend this discount to students.

No.  We do monitor network traffic in the exam environment and have detection mechanisms in place for cheating in the environment and the exam, but there will be no proctor or intrusive software to install on your machine.

In efforts to stay green, we do not offer printed certifications.  However, our certifications come in a high quality printable format and you’re welcome to have them printed on your own accord.
