Those courses specifically include Basic and Advanced Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing and Web Applications Pen Testing, along with Certified Penetration Tester (CPT) and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification prep programs – administered by widely respected trainers such as Keatron Evans.

“Having IMPACT Pro used in the professional training environment is one of the most effective methods that we know of for ensuring that the penetration testing experts of today and tomorrow understand the unique and powerful assessment capabilities that our solutions provide,” said Stephen Pace, Vice President of Sales and Services at Core Security. “Our partnership with InfoSec Institute represents a critical element of that strategy here in the U.S; they’ve made all the necessary investments in developing the right curriculum, and hiring the best trainers to help meet the needs of today’s demanding security professionals.”

The training specialist recently announced that during its first six months offering the Certified Penetration Tester (CPT) Examination course to students, the passing rate for candidates who attended the course exceeded 95 percent. The program that prepares individuals to sit for the CPT examination is InfoSec Institute’s Ethical Hacking course, which prepares candidates for both the CEH, as well as the CPT certifications.
