CompTIA PenTest+ launching at Trainee in Q3 2018!

TrainACE will be launching its brand new CompTIA PenTest+ training and certification courses in Q3, 2018.

This new certification has both hands-on and performance-based questions and multiple-choice questions to fully qualify the candidate as skilled and knowledgeable in penetration testing. The successful candidate will understand the management skills necessary to fully plan, scope and manage system weaknesses, not just how to exploit them.

CompTIA PenTest+ uniquely requires candidates to demonstrate their ability to test cloud and mobile devices, covering new environments as well as traditional desktops and servers.
