Pen Test Training Events & Courses

Take hands-on pen test training at a SANS Training Event - classroom sessions, where students can meet our world-class SANS Instructors, and benefit from quality courseware which is regularly updated.

The need for organisations to protect themselves through rigorous pen testing is growing at an exponential rate. SANS offers many core and specialist pen test courses to high profile companies across the world.

For companies with more than 25 students to train please see our Private Training options.

Hands on Learning

SANS Pen Test Curriculum features hands-on lab exercises. These can take the form of virtualised applications, appliances and machines that have been built to test theories students have learned. Some courses have over 30 in-depth labs.

Pen Test Courses Built to be Remembered

Our Penetration Testing security training events are hands-on. This approach to learning is central to SANS' educational philosophy.

Courseware

SANS provides students with copies of virtual machines studied in class. These may contain specialist applications and software specimens. This allows students to recreate lab exercises.

SANS Pen Test curriculum focuses on perfecting skills in key analytical tools. We ensure all students have a copy of these tools so they can deploy the techniques learned immediately.

Along with wealth of software resources, students are equipped with a library of printed material too. The list includes:

  • Expertly written textbooks, written - and regularly updated - by the same experts who created the course.
  • Posters created by security experts that distil complex processes and concepts into easily digestible flow-charts.
  • Cheat sheets that summarise pen test's central tenets and key processes.

Locations

Students can access a SANS Pen Test course in major cities all over the world.

SANS also holds focussed Pen Test only Events. Pen Test Berlin is - for example - an annual event where we run several Pen Test courses at one event.

By taking a SANS Pen Test course at a Training Event students have the opportunity to earn a sought after Pen Test Coin.

Networking

Students can expect many opportunities to meet fellow practitioners at a Pen Test Training Event. During the training there are frequent coffee breaks where students can chat with peers and their Instructor.

SANS often hosts social evenings. These are informal gatherings where students and Instructors meet and share questions, insights and opinions.
