What is the Practical Network Penetration Tester Certification?

The PNPT certification exam is a one-of-a-kind ethical hacking certification exam that assesses a student’s ability to perform a network penetration test at a professional level. In order to receive the certification, a student must:

  • Perform Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) to gather intel on how to properly attack the network
  • Leverage their Active Directory exploitation skillsets to perform A/V and egress bypassing, lateral and vertical network movements, and ultimately compromise the exam Domain Controller
  • Provide a detailed, professionally written report
  • Perform a live report debrief in front of our assessors
