What Makes SANS Penetration Testing Courses Special?

Unlike other courses that claim to teach ethical hacking, SANS classes are uniquely designed and written to provide the understanding and skills necessary to be counted among the best penetration testers in the business. Our courses cover a wide variety of different technological landscapes penetration testers may face, with our in-depth focus on network pen testing, web application pen testing, and wireless pen testing.

And, let's face it. While our focus is on penetration testing to provide high-value, properly conducted tests are also a tremendous amount of fun. Penetration testing is a truly exciting and rewarding job, and this joy of the well-done professional test shines throughout our course material and expert instructors, each with real-world experience in penetration testing.

Penetration testing courses are available at SANS live classroom training events and other delivery methods such as: SANS OnDemand, Community SANS, Mentor Sessions, Private Training and Self-Study.

Online options available. Train from any location.
