CPENT: Certified Penetration Testing Professional

Visualize as an Attacker and Transform into the Leading Edge of Cyber Security!

The Certified Penetration Testing Professional (C|PENT) course enables you to think like a cyber-attacker. It gives you the designation of a “penetration tester” by providing you with high-level penetration skills. You will learn to conduct binary exploitations, develop your tools, write your exploits, and lot more. Performing penetration testing on modern-day networks will make you an expert professional, best-equipped to handle cyber-attacks with utmost efficiency!

The illegal hackers could misuse the same techniques to root fraudulent damage in the computer systems and here the penetration tester works as the strongest advanced guard of cybersecurity. The C|PENT course is the original certification for attacking IoT devices. It is the world's first penetration testing certification that permits you to access Modbus communication protocol and communicates between PLC and slave nodes.

Your experience becomes more exciting with Vinsys’ additional attractions: 

  • Inquiry-based classroom approach
  • 24*7 assistance
  • Exam Assistance
  • After-course follow-ups
  • Regular mock tests

CPENT: Certified Penetration Testing Professional Certification Course

The C|PENT is a 40 hours/5 days course which is usually recommended after C|EH. It enables you to execute penetration tests on information processing system, applications, and networks. It trains you to infiltrate any system with the help of technical coding skills in an enterprise’s Filtered network environment. It also licenses you to access disguised networks with pivoting and double pivoting as well. You will have direct intelligence on how financial, managerial, and other businesses get attacked by cyber attackers.

This is a unique course that trains you in Advanced Windows attacks, attacking IoT systems, pen-testing Operational Technology (OT), accessing hidden networks with pivoting and double pivoting, bypassing a filtered network, privilege escalation, evading defense mechanisms, and several other techniques.

Course Curriculum


  • Network server administrators
  • Ethical Hackers
  • Security Testers
  • Penetration Testers
  • Firewall Administrators
  • System Administrators and Risk Assessment professionals


The applicant must have a Certified Network Defender (CND) and CEHv11/CEHv10 certificate so as to have a better comprehension of penetration testing.

Course Objectives

  • Advanced Windows Attacks: The candidate needs to apply the PowerShell bypass approach together with additional methods to retrieve a windows machine that has defenses in place. The objective here is to examine the knowledge of PowerShell of the applicant.
  • Pentesting Operational Technology (OT): The challenge is to gain a first of its kind of penetration testing certification. The tester has to gain access to a dedicated OT network and perform modifications to the existing data by penetrating from the IT network side.
  • Attacking IoT Systems: Hacking IoT devices begins with identifying firmware, searching the device, extracting, gaining access, and performing reverse engineering. 
  • Attack Automation with Scripts: The tester must use advanced penetration techniques and scripting in languages such as Perl, Python, Ruby, PowerShell, BASH, and Metasploit and Fuzzing techniques to complete the challenge.
  • Advanced Binaries Exploitation: Penetration testers are required to access the system, look for flawed binaries, use reverse engineering, and write exploits for privilege escalation.
  • Bypassing a Filtered Network: In a segmented architecture, the attacker must locate the architecture's filtering, use it to his or her advantage to compromise the web applications, and then use that access to obtain the necessary data.
  • Access Hidden Networks with Pivoting: The tester must penetrate the direct network by identifying the filtering rules and then attempt pivots into the hidden network via a filter using single pivoting methods.
  • Double Pivoting: Quoting EC-Council, “CPENT is the first certification in the world that requires you to access hidden networks using double pivoting.” This challenge tests the tester's skills as the pivot has to be set up manually.
  • Weaponize Your Exploits: This enables the testers to complete the challenge using their coding skills and their own tools.
