The EC-Council Licensed Penetration Tester (Master) exam prep course delivers the advanced concepts you will need to take the intense 18-hour exam. It follows the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) certification for those who want to be recognized as elite penetration testing professionals.

This course is designed to show advanced concepts such as scanning against defenses, pivoting between networks, deploying proxy chains and using web shells. The last module includes a scope of work for each of the various networks we have created for the course. This, combined with the composition of various ranges, mimics a professional penetration test.
