CPENT - Certified Penetration Testing Professional

EC-Council’s Certified Penetration Tester (CPENT) program teaches you how to perform an effective penetration test in an enterprise network environment that must be attacked, exploited, evaded, and defended.


Years of research indicate that the majority of Pen Testing candidates have gaps in their skills when it comes to multiple disciplines. The metrics also prove when the targets are not located on the same or a directly connected and reachable segment, very few can perform as well as they do when it is direct and on a flat network.

If you have only been working in flat networks, CPENT’s live practice range will teach you to take your skills to the next level by teaching you how to pen test IoT systems, OT systems, how to write your own exploits, build your own tools, conduct advanced binaries exploitation, double pivot to access hidden networks, and also customize scripts/exploits to get into the innermost segments of the network.

Target audience:

  • Ethical Hackers
  • Penetration Testers
  • Network server administrators
  • Firewall Administrators
  • Security Testers
  • Security Engineers
  • System Administrators
  • Security Analysts  
  • Risk Assessment professionals
  • Information Security Consultants

As a result of the training participants will be able to:

  • Accomplish Advanced Window Attacks
  • Attack IoT Systems
  • Write Exploits: Advanced Binaries Exploitation
  • Bypass a Filtered Network
  • Pentest Operational Technology (OT)
  • Access Hidden Networks with Pivoting
  • Accomplish Double Pivoting
  • Perform Privilege Escalation
  • Evade Defense Mechanisms
  • Attack Automation with Scripts
  • Build Your Armory: Weaponize Your Exploits
  • Write Professional Reports


2 Certs, One Exam - CPENT & LPT Master

You have the potential to earn two certifications with one exam. If you score above 90% on the CPENT live range exam, not only will you earn the CPENT certification, but you will also earn the Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) Master Credential!

 Exam features:

  • Choose your challenge! Either two 12-hour sessions or a single 24-hour exam!
  • EC-Council specialists proctor the entire exam; cheating is not an option.
  • Score at least 70% and become a CPENT.
  • Score at least 90% and earn the highly regarded LPT (Master) designation!


Prerequisites to the course (recommended):

Extensive knowledge of penetration testing across multiple disciplines extending from windows, IoTs, inline defenses to automation, operational technology, and advanced skills in binary exploitation. The certification tests the knowledge of the tester not only on automated tools but manual testing skills as well.

  • Advanced knowledge in Networking Protocols
  • Knowledge in Kali or ParrotOS and common Penetration Testing Tools
  • Knowledge in Exploiting Windows and Linux Hosts
  • Knowledge in Privilege Escalation in Linux and Windows
  • Knowledge in Wireless Penetration Testing
  • Knowledge in Web Application Penetration Testing


Training Principles:

The CPENT range consists of entire network segments that replicate an enterprise network — this is not a computer game simulation; this is an accurate representation of an enterprise network that will present the latest challenges to the pen tester. The benefit of hands-on learning in a live cyber range is that candidates will encounter multiple layers of network segmentation, and the CPENT course will teach candidates how to navigate these layers so that once access is gained in one segment, a candidate will know the latest pivoting techniques required to reach the next. However, that won’t be enough on its own as the targets and segments are progressive in nature, so once you get into one machine and or segment, the next one will challenge you even more.

The prerequisite for issuing the certificate is full participation in training.

Length: 40 academic hours
