You learn a Security University Q/SA Certification and (Optional) Q/PTL Penetration Tester License that validates your skills. The Q/SA class has been considered the best Penetration Testing skills certification that validates you to be a Qualified Security Analyst Penetration Tester.

The only way to get a Q/PTL Qualified Penetration License is to EARN one, not buy one. The Optional Q/PTL is 3 hours after Q/SA class ends each day (Tuesday â€“ Thursday). You'll practice how to gain access to unauthorized information with current exploitation tools and processes from the Q/SA class. Not just learn the tactical Business skills necessary to perform valid vuln Security Testing regardless of the target.
The Q/PTL workshop validates your Penetration Testing and security analysis tactical skills you learned in the Q/SA class. To achieve your Q/PTL Qualified/ Penetration Tester License you must perform a Penetration Test with a fully detailed management report to earn your Q/PTL License from Security University (due 7 days after class). Q/PTL participation fee is Euro 1200.
Compliance requirements aside, Penetration Testing is an absolutely critical aspect of any security program. Attackers test every company's defenses every day. An organization either knows what the bad guys are going to find, or it doesn't. If you don't, it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. Great pen-testers think like hackers. They use the same tools and techniques, only they tend to be much more comprehensive in their testing of attack scenarios.
